Motherland follows a group of women who work full-time clearing Artsakh of landmines for the HALO trust. These courageous women put their lives at risk, yet still face stigma of independent, working women in this traditional country. Motherland follows not only their dangerous work, but also the pain of their pasts and their dreams for the future of their children and their country.

Screening with ‘Coming Home’ and ‘Coming from the end: April Diaries’ as part of our Spotlight on Artsakh.
