Zwei Mütter

Feature Film | DE 2013 | 79' | OV

A child will be good for their marriage. So, Katja and Isabella decide to conceive. Both of them agree: they do not want a man with a say in the matter – just sperm, no father. Along their way to having a baby together, though, things turn out to be harder than expected. After a series of grueling sperm donor auditions, they eventually meet »Go for Gold,« a donor who has fathered 20 children in three years. »Go for Gold« finally seems to put the coveted pregnancy within reach, even if the love between the two women is already on the line. Anne Zohra Berrached shot TWO MOTHERS, her third-year film at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, with just two actresses – everyone else in the film plays themselves. That has enabled her to create an impressive hybrid film on the borderline between fictional and documentary productions.
