MOTHER OF GEORGE
Acclaimed director Andrew Dosumnu (Restless City) captures the struggle of a woman eager to conceive a baby boy while at an intersection of her native and new cultures. Beautiful camera work and shocking emotional depths make Mother of George a not to be missed film.

IN PERSON: Screenwriter Darci Picoult

At long last, handsome Ayodele Balogun, owner of a small Nigerian restaurant in Brooklyn, will wed his beautiful fiancée, Adenike, and they will start a new life together in the United States. Their traditional Yoruba wedding culminates in a ceremony where Adenike is named for her yet-to-be-conceived son, George. But as the months pass without pregnancy, Ma George is torn between her Yoruba culture and her new life in America. She makes uncomfortable choices and goes to unimaginable extents in her struggle to save her marriage.
2MOTHERMOG_Still4This astonishingly radiant portrait of Nigerian immigrant family life features soulful performances by Isaach De Bankolé and Danai Gurira, and opulent cinematography by the award-winning Bradford Young. Mother of George is a singular cinematic accomplishment that elevates this illustration of the complicated challenges of African immigrant life to a place of beauty and reverence.
