Mother Of George (Andrew Dosunmu, 2013)

How does a film like this not get more attention? It has more cinematic artistry than half the crap that’s been nominated for Oscars this year….

I interviewed Andrew Dosunmu recently, and we spoke about Mother of George and the portrayal of immigrants in film among other things. He dropped some gems, which might elucidate as to why magnificent films like this do not get the attention they deserve. A lot of it has to do with cliches of immigrants in America, expectations of how Africans are supposed to be represented (usually without complexity) and the fact that people want familiar Hollywood names, and not the best person for the job who might be an unknown.

Read the interview here.

Yes! WATCH IT!!!
