My Mother Makes Soup Noodles My Father Cuts A Simple Thread

Dimitrije Martinovic

1983, 10:00 minutes, colour, English & Yugoslavian


"This videotape is a portrait of my parents. It is a tribute to them as parents and members of the working middle class. My choice of subject matter is implicit in the way I see them; my mother as the homemaker and my father as the worker. The things they say about themselves and the work they do is part of their history. On one level, this tape is a documentary about my parents. On another, it is the depiction of a set of moral and ethical values which we all have to deal with as a legacy handed down to us by our parents." - D.M.
