THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL
DAUGHTER RITE


Country: United States
Year: 1979
Duration: 53'
Direction: Michelle Citron

Sinopsis

In this movie, intimate scenes in which two sisters discuss their mother alternate with home-movie footage and an epistolary narrative expressing the tension in mother-daughter relations. The three channels converge to denounce the conspiratorial silences that confined sexual violence to the private sphere. Through a thoughtful, critical use of film strategies (documentary and home-movie footage), this classic feminist film questions the naiveté traditionally associated with family movies and enlightens the audience on the truthfulness of filmmaking and family union.
