F Rated Film
Friday 12th January 2024 - Thursday 18th January 2024

Dir. Savannah Leaf, US, 2023, 97 mins. Cast. Tia Nomore, Erika Alexander, Doechii.

Nominated for three BIFA awards, including Best Debut Director, Savanah Leaf's Earth Mama is a heart-warming story that explores the complexities of motherhood, the foster care system and the power of unity. “I don’t need a gold star to tell me I’m a good mom!” Heavily pregnant, and a recovering addict, Gia is a single mother who, with two children in foster care, embraces her Bay Area community as she fights to reclaim her family. Without preaching or editorialising, Savanah Leaf’s compassionate, poetic debut depicts a care system that’s stacked against poor American single mothers.
