Film Seekers has added Spanish filmmaker Alberto Sciamma’s travel comedy I Love My Mum to its slate ahead of the upcoming American Film Market (AFM, October 31 – November 7).
Written and directed by Sciamma, whose previous films include 2015’s Blood Trap and 2003’s Jericho Mansions, I Love My Mum centres Olga and her son Ron, who accidentally exile themselves from England to Morocco.
