Tangles and Knots by Renée Marie Petropoulos


Short Drama | Australia | 2018 | 16 Min

A unique, intimate bond between mother and daughter becomes threatened when the mother

‘Tangles and Knots’ is this week’s Staff Pick Premiere. Read more about it on the Vimeo Blog: https://ift.tt/2RamRKs

‘Tangles and Knots’ was produced on the land of the Gadigal peoples of the Eora nation.

We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of the lands on which we work and pay
our respects to Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been
ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
