  • Synopsis
  • Shotgun Cinema is thrilled to partner with Saint Heron to present Sundance Award-winning film, Mother of George. The film begins at 7:00 PM, with Saint Heron’s Wine and Grind party to follow.

    A Nigerian couple living in Brooklyn celebrates a beautiful wedding ceremony with a close group of family and friends. But their difficulty conceiving a child causes great anguish for everyone, until Adenike (Danai Gurira of The Walking Dead ) makes a shocking choice that could either satisfy the hopes and desires of her family and husband Ayodele (the incomparable Isaach De Bankolé) or destroy everything. Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Bradford Young (Arrival) and superbly directed by Andrew Dosunmu, Mother of George​ hypnotically captures the depth, complexity, and dazzling beauty present in its tight-knit community.
