Mom and Other Loonies in the Family

Film Night

Directed by Ibolya Fekete, the film is a zany tale of a family in the 20th century. Four generations of “fools” with Mom in the focus, who has lived 94 years and moved 27 times in her life. Moving was her only means of dealing with trouble, danger or conflicts. At the demented age of 94, Mom tells the story to her daughter – a playful, heart-warming and occasionally heartbreaking span of a hundred years.
