Part bio, part memoir, “Mom’s Move” (2018, 25 min.) is an intergenerational film about mothers and daughters, women and photography, remembering and forgetting, and the tension between women’s private and public selves. Rhoda Mogul, housewife and mother of six, was a lifelong avid amateur photographer. Her creative drive – though confined to the home – had a major influence on my public life as an artist and filmmaker. “Mom’s Move” portrays the relationship between two artists: an unconventional fifties housewife, and myself, her boomer feminist daughter. When Mom sold her house in 2012 at the age of 88, it was both a closure and a point of departure. Mom’s loss of both home and memory was my loss as well. This propelled me to excavate her archive of photography, and ruminate upon our enduring connection through the photographic image.
