excerpt 1 & 2 from “(Mom)position”, Chris Pearce, 2000, 15.5mins., 16mm film animation, color and b/w, silent

An adopted man meets his biological mother for the first time. The story presented through the pages of his journal possessed.

This film is a personal confession of experience; an animated documentary; an honest subjective account of being cut loose from identity and then grasping at the pages for a handhold during free fall.


This film was covered by a review from The Univ. of Washington of the Damah Film Festival in Seattle.
