Call Me Mum is among the finest of recent Australian films, and certainly one of the most affecting and resonant. ” Adrian Martin, The Monthly
Unknown Pleasures presents: CALL ME MUM, Margot Nash, 2006, 76 mins
Q&A with Margot Nash (director), Kathleen Mary Fallon (writer) and Michael McMahon (producer), moderated by Chris Luscri.
When Kate decides to reunite her Torres Strait Islander foster son with his birth mother, dangerous family and racial tensions surface.
A searching work of great prescience, Margot Nash’s Call Me Mum unravels the internecine history of white settler race relations and its longstanding effects on Australia’s Indigenous peoples through the heartbreaking story of 17 year old Torres Strait Islander Warren and his attempts to reconnect with his birth mother Flo.
Presented by Unknown Pleasures, a series of screenings curated by Chris Luscri & Bill Mousoulis, featuring the best of Australian indie cinema, both new and old, with discussions with the filmmakers. LINK – www.pureshitauscinema.com/unknown_pleasures.html
