The mini-documentary mom and her music explores the history of my mother Rose Paña Jeji Shergill’s singing and songwriting. A candid phone interview about her music making and life in the Philippines and Canada is interwoven with original songs that she performed and recorded herself on old cassette tapes between 2005 and 2008, home movie footage spanning over 30 years, and images of personal and familial iconography. The video reveals the bond between a mother and her two daughters who have both moved away, as well as highlighting the therapeutic potential of song.
