Based on filmmaker Darious Britt’s own life experiences, this story of love challenged and a relationship torn and mended portrays an epic battle of wills between mother and son. Regi (played by writer / director Darious Britt), a filmmaker embarking on his dream project, must battle his mother’s condition, the healthcare system, and his worst fears to get her the help that she needs and reclaim his life. As played by Toreenee Wolf in a fearlessly charismatic performance, mom Darolyn is an ultra-clever schemer capable of bamboozling medical staff and authorities with her charm, only to turn on her son in destructive wrath.University of Arizona graduate Darious Britt has made an astonishing and powerful debut feature film, with the simmering intensity of memory to back it up. It’s also a subtle critique of the Kafkaesque nightmare of mental health bureaucracy. (Dir. by Darious Britt, 2013, USA, 94 mins., Not Rated) Digital
Britt will be present at this film screening to answer Q & A afterwards.
