Expected to Attend: Director Kristof Bilsen, executive producer Kirsten Johnson

NYC PREMIERE In Thailand, Pomm serves as a caregiver to elderly Europeans with Alzheimer’s disease, sent abroad to take advantage of relatively low-cost health care. Separated from her own children as she supports them financially from afar, Pomm builds a powerful connection with new patient, Maya. This nuanced portrait of love, family obligation and sacrifice collectively challenges the notion of motherhood. If you cannot remember your children, or see your family, are you still Mom?
