Hallowe’en Film Club – You Are Not My Mother

  • Dates: October 30, 2023
  • Time: 6:00 PM
  • Overview

    It’s the week before Hallowe’en and Char’s mother, Angela, has inexplicably disappeared. All that remains is her abandoned car. When she returns home without explanation the following evening, it becomes clear to Char and her grandmother, Rita, that something is amiss. She might look and sound the same, but Angela’s behavior has become increasingly frightening, as if she has been replaced by a malevolent force. When Hallowe’en arrives, a night steeped in ancient myth and legend, Char realizes that she is the only one who can save her, even if it means potentially losing her forever. Written and directed by Katie Dolan, her intention was to create a frightening film that depicted an authentic coming of age experience while also tapping into the dark folk history we have in Ireland (the birthplace of Samhain/Hallowe’en.) In the past, people who were believed to be changelings were burned alive. The flame was thought to expel the faery doppelganger that had taken their place.
