MAM Review, RUSHES SOHO SHORTS 2011

Released: 1st Sep 2011 Download Send
...my personal favourite from this programme was ‘Mam’. Already an experienced actor in British TV and film (notably in The Full Monty, 1997), Hugo Speer has made a masterful directorial debut with this short, which gives a rich and moving portrait of life in a Yorkshire high-rise, beautifully shot and framed in black-and-white. It shows the morning routine of a twelve-year-old boy who has taken on a lot of responsibility, looking after his three younger siblings as well as his drug-addicted mother who lies comatose in bed. This particular morning, though, will be different. ALISON FRANK - The Moving Arts, review of RUSHES SOHO SHORTS FESTIVAL 2011
