One Narrow and Flimsy Grasp is a short film discussing a mother’s compulsory connection with the cisnormative roles of motherhood, being a housewife, and caring labour within the domestic sphere. It investigates family relations, shared attitudes and intricacies, as well as the power relations, individual struggles, and conflicts of interest these roles create. It signifies an antagonistic disposition towards the universal womanness positioned by this cis- heteropatriarchal regime. It is a documentary that twirls around the social becoming, representing the commencement of auteur’s journey approaching a practical kinship.
