Description

Where were the Mothers? is a compelling book that explores the uneasy fluidity of truth, and reveals the contradictions in trying to assert a singular or absolute narrative.Where were the Mothers? presents the complicated narratives of people who have had run-ins with the law, lived or worked on the street, dealt with addictions or participated in illegal street gangs. Each of these participants collaborates with a professional musician to produce an original song about their mother. Condensing a lifetime of stories into three minutes of music both compresses and alters the original narratives. Duvall juxtaposes videotaped excerpts of the song production process alongside the finished songs.
