Saguenay international
short film festival


Special mention of the International FIPRESCI Critic

For a very special celebration, a host-mother has gathered mothers and their perfect children for a great banquet. Orchestrated by the host-mother, the banquet is suddenly disrupted by strange disturbances. What is hiding behind the scenes of this perfect ideal world? Mothers and Monsters is a surrealist satire about modern-day maternity and the ideal of the family at a time where capitalism has reached its apex.
