OFFICIAL SELECTION
A Tongue Called Mother


Country: Belgium
Year: 2019
Duration: 18'
Direction: Eva Giolo

"A Tongue Called Mother" depicts the relationship between language, gestures and affiliation. It slowly captures the actions and words of three generations of women in the same family and children learning to read, meditating on words learnt and forgotten through the body.

Eva Giolo

Eva Giolo's oeuvre to date shows a propensity to capture familial stories—of her own or of another's. Using documentary strategies, she paints her portraits and creates a window into unseen, usually private, interior worlds. But it is Giolo's skill in these constructs that allows the viewer to watch these images with ease, without feeling like a voyeur but rather as temporarily welcomed inside of the frame. The carefully staged interior shots and low lighting techniques express her tenderness towards her subjects; they are counterbalanced by the exterior, wide angle and travelling shots, revealing her boldness, ambition, and command of the camera. (Rebecca Jane Arthur)
