Irish Film & Television Academy are delighted to host a special IFTA Viewing season screening of Mom and Me, on Thursday 10th March at 6.30pm at the Light House Cinema

Mom and Me is a creative documentary that delicately challenges the familiar love story shared between a son and his mother. It is a story that reveals comedy in the everyday and misery on some other days.

Oklahoma has recently been voted the manliest state in the US. With Mother’s Day coming soon, radio show host Joe Cristiano wants to investigate if the manliest men, in the manliest state in the Union, are willing to call in and discuss their mothers on air.

This is the second feature documentary from Irish filmmaker Ken Wardrop. His debut film His & Hers was both a critical and box office success in Ireland. The film had its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received the World Cinematography Award. His short documentaries have garnered awards across the world including a European Film Academy award for his documentary Undressing My Mother.

Mom and Me is directed by Ken Wardrop and produced by Andrew Freedman of Venom Films. World Sales Agents are Visit Films.
