NIGHT 337 – THE STORY OF AL MAMUN THE YEMENI AND THE SIX SLAVE GIRLS

HERA

By Alexa Seligman

“HERA is dedicated to Vaishali Prazmari and to the other mothers who have given birth alone in these exigent times.”

My good friend the artist and filmmaker Alexa Seligman has dedicated her piece ‘Hera’ – inspired by the eponymous Greek goddess who gave birth to her son Hephaestus alone – to me and all the other mothers who have done a similar thing… it’s a beautiful 7 min film whose preview is available here: https://maternalart.com/blog/hera

I am touched – both by the film, filmmaker and another good friend who together with my family supported me in spirit throughout that long, long spring night ~
