Monday screenings capped with the newest film from writer/director Rodrigo Garcia, MOTHER AND CHILD, a wily and beautifully crafted film about adult relationships that was already praised at last year’s Toronto Film Festival and will be distributed by Sony Pictures Classic. This is grown-up filmmaking at its best. The Maryland Filmmakers Fellowship (administered by MFF) supported Rodrigo’s first script, THINGS YOU CAN TELL JUST BY LOOKING AT HER, which he brought to Baltimore directly from the Cannes Film Festival. He also spent time during that trip with students at the School for the Arts. -Jed
