You watch daughters grow up, learning the steps, mastering or faltering but also praying no one will crush their independent spirits. This film is about the camera as a mirror, a tap class and makeup. But mainly it merges two time frames: when my daughter was young, less self aware and as a teenager/ young woman, and how as a mother these memories intertwine. The poem switches between these time frames, whilst my daughter uses the camera as a surrogate mirror (not a mobile phone here) so quite a skill (!) and is also pictured attracting my attention through the camera all those years ago.
