An interview with the director
Meet Irene Baqué, the cutting-edge director behind For Generations and the other Our Sisterhood stories. For this series, Baqué provides an insight into the everyday existence of women from different ages, backgrounds and stages of life, showing the importance of being able to rely on other women to get through the highs and lows. “Lately, I’ve been drawn to giving a voice to those stories that I feel will inspire and make an impact on myself and the women around me,” she says. Baqué spent time with each group of women featured in the series in order to get to know them and capture the locations and situations that best represent them. “I wanted to uncover the different ‘something’ about each of these women and their sisterhoods that makes them unique,” she explains.
Strength in numbers
In For Generations, Irene Baqué has captured the invaluable need for women to support each other to provide strength, resilience and confidence. Chaneen’s mother and grandmother provide support that helps and guides Chaneen in this new stage of her life. Unconditional love and support flows through this tight-knit family, united through their own experiences of motherhood. “The wisest piece of advice I’ve ever gotten from my mum and my grandma is to believe in myself and to believe that I can do it,” Chaneen says.
