  • 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 Bankol√©) or destroy everything. Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Bradford Young (Arrival) and superbly directed by Andrew Dosunmu, Mother of George‚Äč hypnotically captures the depth, complexity, and dazzling beauty present in its tight-knit community.
