Synopsis

In this modern-day vision of Mother Mary’s pilgrimage, a woman crosses the scorched landscape of the American Southwest, to give birth to our savior in Las Vegas. Reinvented and told entirely through movement, the film deconstructs the role of this woman, who encounters a world full of
bold, archetypal 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. Role reversal and gender bending leads us to imagine a new ending to this familiar journey, as this
virgin mother must not only give birth to our savior, but in the end is challenged to save herself.
