‘Mother And Son’ Clip: Previous Camera D’Or Winner Leonor Serraille’s Cannes Competition Entry

EXCLUSIVE: Previous Camera d’Or winner Léonor Serraille returns to the Cannes Film Festival, this time in the main competition with Mother And Son. The director/writer’s sophomore feature screens on Friday here in Cannes and we have an exclusive clip (see above.)

Set in the late 1980s, Mother And Son sees Rose (Annabelle Lengronne) move from the Ivory Coast to the Paris suburbs with her two young sons, Ernest and Jean. The film spans 20 years from their arrival in France to the present day and chronicles the construction and deconstruction of a family.

Serraille, who scooped the Cannes Film Festival’s Camera d’Or prize for best feature debut with 2017’s Montparnasse Bienvenue (aka Jeune Femme), has said she conceived of Mother And Son through the prism of what it means to be a family; “To be a mother or a son? To come from somewhere else and be French? The film was the result of the complete carte blanche I’d been given. I approached it with a mixed sense of freedom and responsibility.”

Producer is Sandra da Fonseca.
