About

Kermit Sheets, assistant director; Frank Stauffacher, photography; Howard Brubeck, music. One of the first major works of the San Francisco film movement, MOTHER'S DAY is a painfully humorous recollection of childhood in which a family of singular adults recreate their infancy by behaving as they did when growing up. "Humorous, satirical, and overwhelmingly skillful, this ironic camera exploration of the artist's world of memory, imagination and perception is among the finest, most challenging films yet produced in this country." – Arthur Knight "MOTHER'S DAY for me is one of the great films in film history." – Peter Kubelka Awards: Belgium, 1949; Venice, 1952.
