South by Southwest • 5 months ago

While at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, the ISA meet up with part of the creative team behind the comedy drama "Mother's Little Helpers," including director Kestrin Pantera, Milana Vayntrub, Sam Littlefield & Breeda Wool. All appear in the film as actors, are credited as producers and, due to Pantera's directing style, encouraging improvisation on set, all are also credited as co-writers.

Logline/summery: When Joy Pride, a groovy 70's burn-out on the caboose of the flower power movement, learns she has weeks to live, her estranged children come together to do right by a mother who always did them wrong. Mother's Little Helpers is a funny dysfunctional-family drama, based on true events and inspired by true lies, about how family ties can twist and tear you - and though they may not break you, they might send you to prison. It explores the "OK, Boomer" relationship between the free love generation and those left to clean up the mess.
