Movie Info

In this modern-day vision of Mother Mary's pilgrimage, a woman crosses the scorched landscape of the American Southwest. Reinvented and told entirely through movement, the film playfully deconstructs the role of this woman, who encounters a world full of bold characters that are alternately terrifying and sublime. MA is a journey into the visceral and the surreal, interweaving ritual, performance, and the body as sculpture. The absence of dialogue stirs the senses, and leads us to imagine a new ending to this familiar journey. The virgin mother gives birth to our savior, but is also challenged to save herself.

  • ...will probably have a longer life on film-school curricula than in any theater or home collection, but it's audacious enough to warrant attention now.

  • A bold and unique film that has 'personal' written all over it. No one else could have made it.

  • Alternately sexy and silly, galvanic and gentle, "MA" is best enjoyed as a slide show of visual blessings and, sometimes, bafflements.

  • The result is decidedly uneven, but the film's sheer creative ambition is invigorating.

  • Without so much as uttering a word, this microbudget labor of love augurs an exciting new voice.

  • If you're willing to go along on a silent, experimental, dance-based journey of a mother in the desert, Ma is well worth the ride.
