Sons and Mothers
Sons and Mothers 
Sons and Mothers (2013) is an intimate portrait of a group of marginalised men in Adelaide, the capital of Australia's festival state. Led by Alirio Zavarce, a Venezuelan-born actor and theatre director, they create a theatrical love letter to the most important woman in their lives - their mother.

Within the sanctuary of No Strings Attached (NSA), a company that creates groundbreaking theatre by disabled artists and performers, Alirio invites members of the Men's Ensemble - Ricki, Ryan, Damien, Duncan, Abner, Kym and Ben - to expose their innermost secrets.

What unfolds is a poignant and intimate portrait of seven surprising individuals who willingly 'tell all' with honesty, grace, and a healthy dose of irreverence. As they offer their hearts for the sake of a theatre show, complications set in and raise concerns about who will make it to opening night.

Curriculum links: NSW Stage 6 Preliminary Drama, Physical Education/ PDHPE: Aspects of the documentary may be useful for units on improving mental health and health priorities in Australia. Sons and Mothers may also be used when teaching the ACARA Civics and Citizenship syllabus. The film may be used in conjunction with an English unit on film and multimedia to more closely critique cinema-verite.
