Sweatmother is an artist and filmmaker based in London. They use experimental techniques and hybrid documentary filmmaking in collaboration with non-professional actors to create counter-narratives from within their own communities and subcultures.


Their work reclaims the often misplaced voice, body and gaze by repurposing femme/masc & gender non-conforming identities in spaces where objectification is removed, and the agency and difference in the otherness is celebrated. 


Presently they are a Film London Moving Image Fellow 21/22 and a resident artist for INFERNO.
