Writer/director: Gabriel Colome
Producers: Gabriel Colome, David Brigden

Filmmaker’s statement

Ma is a funny yet poignant story of a mother and son who have a strained relationship but come to recognize they need each other nonetheless.

The film, loosely autobiographical in nature, has a deep meaning and connection to my relationship with my own mother, a single parent and immigrant to Canada.

Producing this film, my debut, was challenging as I held the reins of producer, director, writer, lead actor and editor. I often found myself working well beyond my comfort zone.

I hope audiences will relate and reflect upon their own relationships with family.
