“A pivotal work of feminist cinema, Michelle Citron’s Daughter Rite (1978) speculates on the political and personal complexities of mother-daughter relationships through an investigation of her family’s 8mm home movies. In the film, Citron analyzes these inherited images of a seemingly happy mid-century American upbringing—birthday parties, vacation trips, holiday gatherings—using optical printing and an often emotionally disjunctive voiceover to draw out the parent material’s hidden contradictions.” – Light Industry
