Commentaries and bibliography
 
DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT In my works, I often touch upon the theme of fears, fathers and children, a mother’s love. In Mavka, I was interested in investigating the phenomenon of the “castrating mother”, which both gives life and takes it away, the ambivalence between love and absorption.
