Update: Our crowdfunding campaign has come to an end. To all who have donated, a MASSIVE THANK YOU! If you’d still like to donate, please visit www.motherchildmovie.com for more details.
Based on the true story of writer/director Tin Pang’s (The Pale Moonlight) experience as a carer, the film celebrates the incredible bond between a son and his mother after she suffers a stroke. Fraught by physical challenges and psychological shifts, their journey to recovery will be filled with emotional twists and turns, some that may be too difficult to bear. The script depicts a raw, sometimes harrowing conversation between a mother and son.
It’s a story that is all too familiar to many of us, but one that is not nearly represented enough in screen arts. With Mother. Child., the filmmakers hope to bring to light the brave survivors and carers across Australia.
Featuring Lawrence Leung (Network Ten’s Offspring) and Gabrielle Chan (Home Song Stories), Mother. Child. has launched a crowdfunding campaign in conjunction with the Australian Cultural Fund to raise much needed money for production. Shooting is scheduled for December 2016 with a release in early 2017.
Mother. Child. has the backing of Australia’s leading stroke and acquired brain injury organisations, including the National Stroke Foundation, Stroke Recovery Association NSW, Brain Injury Australia, Synapse and Stroke Association of Victoria.
Jude Czerenkowski from the National Stroke Foundation has called Mother. Child. ‘a welcome addition to the expression of the stroke community, and we believe, to many others who have been through the life-changing nature of serious illness.’
We invite you to contribute today. Donations over $2 are tax deductible. Join us and help raise stroke awareness in the community!
Your support will contribute to the costs of producing Mother. Child., such as crew, cast, gear, studio hire and production design. It will also help us to market and distribute the film so that we can share this story with other people who have been affected by stroke.
