“Mother in the Mist” (China), the powerful award-winning drama short on Wuhan’s Coronavirus lockdown directed by Kay Niuyue Zhang, is one of the confirmed films for the lineup of the next Indie Short Fest live screening at Raleigh Studios Hollywood, on July 1st, 6pm.
Awarded Best Film of the Season, in January 2022, the 20-minute “Mother in the Mist” follows the story of a rural single mother, who embarks on a dangerous journey in search of her preemie newborn baby stranded in Wuhan City Hospital.
“In the hope that this film sheds light on how Wuhanese faced horror and uncertainty with bravery, I wish to evoke a gentle gaze upon those people who are seen as ‘virus spreaders’, and portray them as mothers, fathers, daughters and sons whom they truly are”, says Kay Niuyue Zhang.
The director will participate in a Q&A with cast and crew after the screening of the film.
“Mother in the Mist” is one of the six films to be presented at the event.
