Mum's Cards

The filmmaker’s mother is a retired sociologist whose house is full of boxes and boxes of hand-written index cards. The immense archive is opened up through the stories behind the cards. This personal history raises the question of what sociology can mean in terms of understanding the position of culture in society. "Wars of ideas don't just preoccupy you when you're a student. If you have a temperament with an open mind they go on disturbing you all your life."
