Using the visual language of disco culture, Smit creates a heartfelt and intimate reflection on the experience of coming of age as a young woman. Her use of the archival image and references to familiarities of the era creates an ambiguous time and reflective space wherein she and her mother come of age together. We Should Be Dancing is a considered and extraordinary look at the complex nature of being a daughter, becoming a mother, and what it is to understand one’s mother as a woman.
