Hi, It’s Your Mother

Graduation short, short film, stop-motion, 4min 53s, 2016

Mum's calling, and Lisa isn't pleased. "Hi, It's Your Mother" is a shocking tragi-comedic stop motion short about family and blood(y) ties.

‘’As long as art like this exists, there will never be a reason to lose faith in humanity...Hi, It’s Your Mother feels like it dropped out of the sky from an undiscovered dreamland.’’
