  • Hideo, It's Me, Mama

  • Artist: Mako Idemitsu
  • Year: 1983
  • Duration: 23:30
  • Country: Japan
  • The role of the mother in modern Japanese society is examined through a series of scenes of Mama interacting progressively more obsessively with her son Hideo, who is present only as images on a monitor. The mother's powerlessness to own or even contact her son is delineated by his inaccessability; he is always locked away behind the glass of the monitor.
