Cinematographer Bradford Young will co-host the 2013 Maryland Film Festival Closing Night screening of Oscilloscope Laboratories’ Mother of George alongside director Andrew Dosunmu.
Young won the U.S. Dramatic Cinematography award at Sundance 2013 for his work on both Mother of George and David Lowery’s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. His other film credits as cinematographer includes Dee Rees’ Pariah (2011) and Ava DuVernay’s Middle of Nowhere (2012), as well as two features screened within Maryland Film Festival: James Spooner’s White Lies, Black Sheep (MFF 2008) and Dosunmu’s earlier feature Restless City (MFF 2011).
Mother of George is the story of a Nigerian couple in Brooklyn struggling to make their young marriage work while running a restaurant and navigating a new culture, featuring “gripping central” performances from Danai Gurira (of The Visitor, The Walking Dead, and Treme) and Isaach De Bankolé.
