Sorrow had a baby

‘I absorbed the women in my life as I would chloroform on a cloth laid against my face.’ (Vivian Gornick). Sorrow had a baby explores the mother-daughter relationship through multiple lenses: memory, beauty, and inheritance. Jumping between home movies, TV shows, and raw intimate documentary footage the short film asks: Who writes the stories in a family? Who can change them?
