Director’s Vision for ‘Hey, Ma’

‘Hey Ma’ was written and then shot at a time of fairly epic national uncertainty it’s safe to say. The loose idea had been floating around in my head for a year or so but when I sat down to re-write it at the start of the first lockdown the fear and anxiety I was feeling and seeing almost bled onto the page. I feel like the finished product speaks to that desperation for a little certainty and the sanctity we can find in family.We’ve all had moments when we’re totally convinced we’ve just seen someone it couldn’t possibly be – maybe an ex or departed relative – and then they’re gone in the blink of an eye. It can be incredibly emotive especially if some pain is still lingering.That ache to see someone again. It can drive us to do some crazy things or make some pretty huge decisions. It can be a nagging twinge or it can totally absorb us. I wanted to make a film about following that obsession all the way to its not-so-logical conclusion.
