Love, Mommy (USA, 35 min)
Directed by: Tala Hadavi and Yeong-Ung Yang
'Love, Mommy' is an intimate portrait of a formerly incarcerated woman who is attempting to put her troubled past aside and reunite with one of her daughters. When Kilzy Gonzalez, 37, was convicted of attempted sale of heroin four years ago, she asked her old friend, Roxanne Hunter, to care for her three-month-old daughter, Halena. It was supposed to be a temporary agreement. But two years after her release from prison, Kilzy is still fighting to get Halena back and to overcome a past that includes trauma, sexual violence and substance abuse. Will she get a second chance?
