TWO MUMS AND A GIRAFFE wins the 2019 AWARD of Excellence at Canada Short Film Festival.
I play the role of Dawn opposite the brilliant Pandora Colin who plays Marcie.
Each mother envies the other mother’s role. One gets bath-times and stories, the other gets a grand evening entrance after an exciting day’s work. Dawn is the biological mum, Marcie has no DNA bond. Dawn feels like she’s lost her individuality. She compensates by becoming the best mother in the house. She gradually pushes her wife out, one quirky ornament at a time. Until the living room is a playpen and Marcie’s daring paintings are replaced with reading lists and nutrition guidelines. Can the two mums regain their individuality and be equal mothers too? It’s time for a showdown. Meanwhile, three-year-old Bailey has lost her toy giraffe.
