It opens this Friday - one of two notable black films making their theatrical debuts (the other being Blue Caprice).
But if you live in New York City, you can see Andrew Dosunmu's Mother Of George one day early; but not only that, the writer/director will be present for that screening, in person, for a Q&A following the screening.
The screening will take place at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, this Thursday, at 7pm.
I suggest you pick up tickets now if you're interested in attending.
