Mothers and Terrorists
Written by David Beach
Directed by Kristin Lundberg
Looking back at Mom. And 9/11. And all that transpired.
Every year, Russell pauses on September 11 to remember two work friends who perished in the attack on the Pentagon, but also to reflect on the changes in his relationship with his mother during that year, when her life changed because of dementia. Mothers and Terrorists juxtaposes emotional and existential angst and aims at finding some truth and meaning through them both.
