The Year of Outliving (w.t)
At 10, filmmaker Alexandra Shiva lost her mother to cancer – a diagnosis her mother had kept hidden from virtually everyone. 36 years later, as Shiva is set to outlive her mother, she embarks on a cinematic journey to explore the mother-daughter bond through its absence. Using a treasure trove of personal belongings, including decades worth of home movies, the film offers a glimpse into a bygone era of Hollywood glamour, while peeling back the layers of a life to reveal a poetic meditation on memory, loss and motherhood.
