Scars Of Our Mothers’ Dreams
by Meschida Philip
Scars of Our Mothers’ Dreams is a film that offers a unique, intimate glimpse into the complexities of parental migration through the lenses of children left behind. Years after her own personal struggle to overcome the feeling of childhood abandonment, filmmaker Meschida Philip returned to Grenada in search of others with similar childhood experiences, to find out how their lives were impacted after their parents migrated.
