Barrage

2016

After ten years abroad, Catherine (30) returns to Luxembourg, to catch up with her daughter Alba (11), brought up by Catherine’s mother Elisabeth. Alba is cold and distant with this stranger showing up unexpectedly in her life, so is Elisabeth, keen to keep her protégée to herself. One day, Catherine cannot take it anymore. She kidnaps Alba and takes her to a lake up North. Begins an unsettling journey into the puzzling world of motherly love. DOP: Helene Louvart/ Director: Laura Schroeder                   Barrage was selected in the Forum Section of Berlinale 2017
