Synopsis

Tierney Gearon: The Mother Project
Filmmakers Peter Sutherland and Jack Youngelson profile controversial photographer Tierney Gearon in a documentary that traces the acclaimed shutterbug's personal development and highly publicized run in with London police -- who deemed her 2001 exhibition at a London's Saatchi Gallery pornographic. When Gearon was just a young adolescent, her mother began to experience troubling psychological problems that eventually shattered their entire family. Years later, as the artist's own marriage began to fail, Gearon immersed herself in film as a means of documenting her family and embarking on an inward journey of self-examination. Whether her portraits were of her two young children or her elderly mother, the photographer consistently claims that every picture she takes is a self-portrait. In 2001, authorities accused Gearon of child pornography upon discovering that her Saatchi Gallery exhibition contained nude pictures of her children, and as a result Gearon began to doubt her abilities as a parent as she increasingly turned her lens on her own mother. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
