Tierra Madre is a first hand account of a hard working woman in Tijuana determined to provide a better future for her daughter with her female partner. One day, her girlfriend shares her desire to have a child of her own, and, artificial insemination not being legally permitted, convinces Aidee to go on the hunt for a male to conceive a child.
This feminist feature film champions same-sex relationship, the strength, the independence, and the solidarity that exits among women of all ages. It was shot in ten days with a budget of $2,000, a one-man crew, and a cast of non-professional-actors.
Award winner: Morelia Film Festival, Out in the Desert Film Festival, Chicago Reeling Film Festival, Barcelona Film Festival, Cinesul Film Festival, Williamsburg Film Festival, New Jersey Film Festival, Honolulu Film Festival, and Mexico International Film Festival.
