From a burned-down Swedish forest, Josefin brings the Mothership (her own mother) to the spiritual town of Abadiania, Brazil to meet John of God, one of the most famous healers in the world. But when they arrive, John of God has been hospitalised. The film talks about a mother-daughter relation, infected by alcoholism, co-dependency and love.

WET Screening is a free online platform for film and video, collectively curated by the members of WET and accompanied by a conversation with the artist in a form of an audio recording. The conversations will form an archive representing a range of voices within contemporary moving image practices. Our goal is to build a community of international artists working with the moving image, in order to support and disseminate their work.
