Mother of George, the Sundance hit and second feature film by fashion photographer turned director Andrew Dosunmu, was released to critical acclaim in 2013.  Written by Darci Picoult, the film centers on a New York-based Nigerian couple. Eighteen months after their marriage, Adenike, played by Danai Gurira, has yet to get pregnant. Desperate for a child and facing pressure from cultural norms and an intrusive mother-in-law, Adenike is determined to bear a child and keep her husband Ayodele, played by Isaach de Bankolé, from straying. Visually striking and beautifully acted, Mother of George is an intimate portrayal of an intimate story. Read on for secrets behind the making of Mother of George.
