I’ll Be Your Mirror
Director: Johanna Faust
Runtime: 91 minutes
To what degree can motherhood and self-fulfilment be reconciled? Johanna Faust would like to leave her children and her husband behind in order to pursue her artistic career. But when she gets an invitation to study art at Oxford, doubts arise. Johanna vaguely remembers painful stories that her mother told her about her grandmother. Didn’t she leave her family, too? And what were the consequences? In search of an answer, Johanna and her family embark on a journey into the history of her family, which takes them from Switzerland through the USA to the Mexican desert. «I’ll be your mirror» is the intimate portrait of three generations of women torn between social norms, children’s needs and their own desires.
