My Mother's Son
No one knows where they're going, until they know where they've come from.
Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
of 800.00 GBP funding goal
When out-of-place loner Ricky becomes a father his thoughts are cast back to his mother who abandoned him as a child.
He travels to his mothers native Newcastle in a hope to discover once and for all if his similarity to her is merely superficial or if his own fate is mapped out in his past.
Ricky is both protagonist and antagonist in his own struggle to find much needed assurance in himself. The story explores the concept of identity, whether its political, superficial or something deeper that pre-determines our actions before we even know ourselves.
The challenge of this film lies in the filmmakers and writers choice to forgo the use of dialogue and rely on limited voice over, sound, music and above all, images to convey Ricky's journey.
The Budget for this film is £1,000. The producer has already committed £200 to the development of the project and we are now seeking an additional £800. The money will be spent wisely! The money we collect will be spent on:
Camera equipment rental
Sound equipment rental
Post production: Editing, Sound mixing and Music Composition
Travel and catering expenses for cast and crew
and entry to film festivals.
Writer: Edward Caruana Galizia
Producer/ Director: Maria Caruana Galizia
Script Editor: Emma Degnan
Composer: Edward Abela
More to be confirmed soon!
