DIRECTOR'S STATEMENTFor My Mother is the most personal film I have ever or will ever make. The film retraces my mother's final walk in one long POV take. The fact that there were no eyewitnesses to the scene of her death continues to trouble me. This film was one way to allow myself to see what she must've seen that fateful day. This film is for my mother.
