A Common Thread

BRODEUSES

un film de : Eléonore Faucher

When Claire learns that she is five months pregnant at the tender age of 17, she decides to give birth anonymously. She finds refuge with Madame Melikian, an embroiderer for haute couture designers. And, day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery create a filial bond between them.

French Synopsis :

Quand, du haut de ses 17 ans, Claire apprend qu’elle est enceinte de cinq mois, elle décide d’accoucher sous X. C’est chez Mme Melikian, brodeuse à façon pour la haute couture, qu’elle trouve refuge. Et jour après jour, point après point, à mesure que le ventre de Claire s’arrondit, se transmet entre elles deux, plus que l’art de la broderie, celui de la filiation.
