Mother's Milk



synopsis

Mother's milk is a metaphor representing the first gift one receives which defines one's self-image and sense of worth. In this experimental collaborative made up of different chapters (shot by different directors) Sparrow quantum leaps through a dying universe to find his mother and true home. Different actors depict Sparrow at different stages as he looks for his dignity and value as the Black man. Wonderful imagery enhanced by a great soundtrack.
