ARTE: Mother of George

This film comes out in LA tomorrow. The trailer is beautiful and some of our favorites worked on the film, Bradford Young is the DP, Mobalji Dawodu was the costume designer and Andrew Dosunmu helms the director role! Check it out.


Adenike and Ayodele (The Walking Dead's Danai Guira and veteran actor Isaach De Bankole) are a Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn.  Following the joyous celebration of their wedding, complications arise our of their inability to conceive a child - a problem that devastates their family and defies cultural expectations, leading Adenike to make a shocking decision that could either save her family or destroy it.  Acclaimed director Andrew Dosumnu (Restless City) captures the nuances of this unique and fascinating culture by creating a beautiful, vibrant and moving portrait of a couple whose joys and struggles are at once intimate and universal.
