synopsis
Back Home is an autobiographical documentary about the filmmaker's heart-rending personal journey to reconcile with her estranged mother, who is about to undergo hip surgery in Tokyo. Filmed mostly by the director herself, the story explores the complexity of the Mother-Daughter relationship, which had been strained over the years apart by physical and emotional distance.

director
Haruka Motohashi is a filmmaker, editor, and a contemporary visual artist from Tokyo. Motohashi graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA(2013); during her time there, she emphasized on Film/Video/New Media/Animation and interdisciplinary art practice. Her artistic pursuit grew beyond the visual arts into moving images and documentaries. She started creating narrative films, which blurs the lines between documentary and fiction, interweaving intimate, personal, and family memories with deeply artistic visuals. Her MFA thesis short film "Back Home" has been screened numerous film festivals nationally internationally, including KAFFNY (Brooklyn, New York), Big Muddy Film Festival (Illinois), and DokuBaku International Documentary film festival (Baku, Azerbaijan).
