mother of george w/ saint heron
december 9, 2016
The Saint Heron team is collaborating with Shotgun Cinema to bring you a screening of the Sundance-prize winning film, Mother Of George. The film has a visual manner that is unlike any other. Cinematographer Bradford Young (Selma, Arrival) and the incredible director that is Andrew Dosumnu have created a compelling story that explores how a tight knit community navigates life’s events.
Based in modern Brooklyn, the film tells the story of a newlywed Nigerian couple. We quickly learn of their difficulties with conceiving a child which causes issues for the newlyweds and their families. 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.
To find out how the story line unfolds, join us on Friday, December 9th at The Saint Heron House (1340 Monetgut Street) and stick around to Wine & Grind the night away afterwards. Tickets can be purchased for pre-sale here!
