107 Mothers is a 2021 Russian-Language Slovak drama film by Peter Kerekesa that premiered at the 78th Venice International Film Festival and was selected as the Slovak entry for the 2022 Official Oscar Submissions. It is set in a female prison in Ukraine.


Lesya has committed a crime of passion which brings her a seven-year sentence in one of Odessa’s women’s correctional facilities. She has just given birth to her first child, and now she is entering a world populated only by women: inmates, nurses and wardens, women of all ages, wives and widows, daughters, sisters, pregnant women, and women with children too. If not for the color of the uniform, it would sometimes be hard to tell who is who.

The film has won many awards, including Best Screenplay at Venice 2021, Industry Select at the Toronto International Film Festival 2021 and Best Director at the Chicago International Film Festival 2021.
