Mothers of Derick
Dê Kelm
Documentary : 77' / Women, Feminism, Lesbian, Community, Family, Polyamory

The daily life of four young women raising a nine-year-old son in a small town on the south coast of Brazil. Lesbian/bi, feminists, anarchists, non-monogamous, they build with their own hands a house in an occupied area in the middle of the forest, facing the imminent threat of eviction by the police. Beyond the depiction of the many shapes a family can have, Mães do Derick also highlights the growing need of many people to find alternative lifestyles.
