Mother Mirror is filmed at the Queen's House in Greenwich, and weaves together testimonies from queer people in London as they describe what "chosen family" means to them. This video features Nat Li Lin Steinhouse and Gabriel Bonet, as they interpret feelings of queer isolation, pain, togetherness, water, fluidity, and intimacy through dance. Directed by Anju Kasturiraj, dedicated to her chosen family in London and San Francisco.
