Alex Bohs say:
What was your hope for this film? Is it being realized yet?
With every film I take on, my main hope is always to connect. I just find it so beautiful to create/share a bond with so many different individuals all over the world just by making something simple and relatable (while also maintaining a sense of originality and my own personality/life experience laced within). With that said, it never gets easier trying to put into words just how rewarding it is to receive hundreds of responses from family, friends and even strangers, expressing how much the film means to them. It’s been specifically surreal with MUM as this is a very personal film to me so knowing it has found a home in others as a personal experience is absolutely inspiring and a rather poignant solidification that my hope for MUM is certainly being realized.
