Doco 180 Initiative - MOTHER // LOVER by Erin McBean
What do you think of when you think of sex and motherhood?
Should you have a baby on your own? And what happens if you do decide to be a solo parent - will you be alone forever?
Mother//Lover takes a comedic and honest look at the realities of dating when you’re a queer solo parent living in the bush. The film allows solo parent Holly to open up about her parenting challenges and shines a light on this contemporary version of motherhood. Both a meditation on the intersections of motherhood and sexuality, and a “How To” guide to dating as a single parent, Mother//Lover explores the unexpected issues that face women who are changing the face of motherhood, one tinder date at a time.
Mother//Lover is a short documentary produced and directed by Erin McBean as part of the Screen Australia/WHIMN Doco 180 Initiative Mother//Lover and can be viewed here: https://www.whimn.com.
