Conversations between Brakhage and his mother and then with his wife

In a very personal conversation, Stan Brakhage confronts his mother about her past wrongdoings. They talk about forgiveness, love, lying, his childhood and religious upbringing. There is some discussion about the house she lives in; here Clara is inaudible.
