Movies, Movies, Movies…

It is this time of year again where I become a nonexistent mother. Last year by about midway through the festival, my then 9-year old asked when I would be coming home. Life without mom just wasn’t the same, daddy dinner’s, lack of structure, understanding homework, etc. I am cutting back a bit this year. Instead of seeing 2-3 movies during the week, I will only see one per night, so it feels like I am still around. Weekends will still be the full 12 hours of film. Sundance is the one thing I just love for me. I work, I am a mom, I manage all the things that go with kids, the house, sports and for 11 BEAUTIFUL days I engross myself into film with a few of my lovelies.

My recent pre-prep movies were Chasing Coral and Landfillharmonic with the kids, Ladybird, Call Me By My Name and Screenagers (with the kids). One day when my kids don’t think I am cool anymore, which will be just a few short years away, I am going to attend some workshops to figure out how to get my ideas into script form. I am going to have something entered into Sundance one day! Although in the meantime, I plan to curate a new project showing Sundance and other independent films suitable for kids to inspire our kids to be better humans and see the world beyond their SLC bubble.
