A MÃE

Video HD 39 min, 2012

A mãe is a cinematic portrait of the biggest food market of south America in São Paulo, the CEASA. Into this monstrous belly of agro industrial capitalist exchange, the film considers working conditions, narratives and gestures of different users and migrant workers: delivering, sorting, cutting, loading, carrying and waiting. What remains in the plate of the meal of a migrant carrier and what or who did he leave behind? What is left and remains to be shared for the workers, the users and the spectators after the exhaustion of work and of the market landscapes?
