My Mom on Movies

Maker Studios (2012-2019)
Director: Joshua Seftel

Like all good sons, Joshua Seftel regularly calls his mother – usually at her Sarasota, FL condominium (winter) or her home in Schenectady, NY (summer). Seftel realized that there was something more to these conversations and lately has been filming them to share with others. It began as a lighthearted web series about pop culture. It has become an intimate and often humorous documentation of how, after 44 years, a mother and son discovered a new way of relating to one another.

"The word “droll” seems as if it were invented for these two."
