Andrew Dosunmu's MOTHER OF GEORGE ends Thursday October 3! Gene Siskel Film Center

"A lavish and exuberantly colorful wedding in Brooklyn’s Yoruba community unites restaurant-owner Ayodele (De Bankolé) and beautiful new arrival from Nigeria, Adenike (Gurira), but all is not well. 

Director Dosunmu, a former creative director for Yves Saint Laurent, brings visual bravado and striking styling to this tale of a fledgling marriage threatened by the bride’s failure to conceive, and her imperious mother-in-law’s secret and potentially scandalous plan for producing the all-important heir. 

Starring Isaach De Bankolé (CASINO ROYALE) and Danai Gurira (AMC's The Walking Dead), the film's eye-popping colors and striking widescreen compositions earned Director of Photography Bradford Young the Best Cinematography award at Sundance." -Source- The Gene Siskel Film Center
Actor and producer Tony Okungbowa was present for Q&A following the 3:00 show on Saturday.
