by Clare Weiskopf New World View: Colombia

For quite some time, Clare has longed to make a film about her mother Val. But how is one to capture a freedom-loving nomad who has often gone her own way without her husbands or children? Clare likes to reminisce about her unusual childhood, which took her and her siblings from the rainforest of Colombia to a hippie commune in England. But some of the decisions made by her unconventional and intriguing mother have left deep wounds and unanswered questions for Clare. Now that she’s expecting a child herself, Clare, equipped with a camera, sets off to find the lonely “Amazon”. In the award-winning essay film AMAZONA, we get to know an extraordinary woman who not only challenges conventional ways of life, but questions the conventions of motherhood itself.
