Good Bones

Based on the viral poem by Maggie Smith that seized the mood, and social-media accounts of so many people in the tumultuous year that was 2016, Good Bones, directed by Anaïs La Rocca, is the fantastical story of a mother trying to navigate how to shield her daughter from the injustice and disillusionment of the world she's brought her into.

Written, directed, produced and post produced by an all female team, this 4 minute film was made for Motion Poems Season 8 in collaboration with The Mill and aims to capture the power, political strength and courage within women and motherhood.
