Surviving My Mother – 97min
“SURVIVING MY MOTHER” is a comedic drama about the complex relationship between mothers
and daughters, from the creators of the smash-hit 2003 movie “Mambo Italiano”, screenwriter Steve
Galluccio and director Emile Gaudreault. On her deathbed, Clara’s mother tells her that « she wants
to get to know her ». This revelation shocks Clara: how could her mother, a woman who’s needs she
has placed before those of her daughter Bianca’s and her husband Ricardo’s, not know her? Clara
swears to herself that she will not do to her daughter what her mother did to her: she will make it her
life’s work to get to really know her 21 year old daughter Bianca. As Clara delves deeper and
deeper into Bianca’s life to get to the truth the results are more shocking than she expected. Will
Clara be able to deal with the truth about her daughter ?
