This haunting documentary focuses on conversations between women who were forced into marriages as young children and their families. Married due to cultural traditions in Jewish communities in Yemen and Morocco, these women’s stories went largely unheard. ‘Child Mother’ gives these former child brides the chance to share their life stories, and highlight a damaging and traumatic custom that is still practised around the world.
