mother of george

mog5have you seen mother of george?  the film premiered at the sundance film festival earlier this year to great reviews.  directed by andrew dosunmu, director of last summer’s restless city, the film is about the struggles a yoruba woman faces soon after her marriage and immigration to brooklyn.  she and her husband unsuccessfully tried to conceive a child for over a year when, as a result of his frustration, a neighbor recommends a surprising suggestion.  built around the themes of culture, tradition, marriage and gender roles, the story line is just as remarkable as the images.  no surprise the cinematographer, bradford young, won the award for best cinematography at sundance.
