Maria Shevchenko
Ukraine / 2020 / 20min
In Russian and Ukrainian with Eng Sub

The director went to search for her estranged mother, a schizophrenic who drifted away when she was only two and who now lives alone in a rural village. The director hopes not only to improve her mothers livelihood, but also to uncover her pain buried beneath her condition and better understand her emotional world.

Director's Profile
Maria Shevchenko is a journalist and documentary film director. In 2016, she received a Masters degree in journalism from the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine. Before making documentaries, she produced reality shows.

Director's Note
All my life I considered myself insignificant, no matter what I did and what I managed to achieve. But I wanted to be seen. So I decided to become a journalist because it involves communication with other people and the ability to express yourself. And filming Birthmark appeared to be the best healing practice for me - that brought me closer to my Mom and sisters.
