The Lost Secret of the Throne

The Lost Secret of the Throne is a documentary film developed as a project between three mothers and their respective daughters on the cusp of womanhood. Developed as a project to reinforce the girls’ awareness of their own strength and the strength of women throughout history, the project explores the depiction of breastfeeding in Western popular culture through the lens of the three girls. The exploration begins 6000 years back in history in ancient Egypt with images of Isis, continues through the catacombs of Rome and images of Mary, and on into the museums of the world. Documented by the Healthy Children Project, filming takes place on location in Egypt, Rome, and London. The girls, guided by their mothers and a wise grandmother, work to make sense of the evolving images of breastfeeding in art as a reflection of a cultural framework of women, beauty and power. The three girls explore the secret language of popular culture: how does it speak to different eras, how can we learn to interpret it in different ages and what does it say to us today? The quest is one of intellectual self exploration and social awakening for the girls as they uncover the mysteries of icons representing female power and strength.
