In this Film Ireland podcast, Gemma Creagh talks to Kate Dolan, the writer and director of You Are Not My Mother.
Rooted in eerie Irish folklore, the creepy and unsettling chiller is Kate’s debut feature. Char’s mother, Angela (Bracken), has inexplicably disappeared. All that remains is her abandoned car. When she returns home without explanation the following evening, it becomes clear to Char (Doupe) and her grandmother, Rita (Craigie), that something is amiss. She might look and sound the same but Angela’s behaviour has become increasingly frightening, as if she has been replaced by a malevolent force. As Halloween night looms, 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.
You Are Not My Mother is available to watch on Netflix now.
