MOM INTERRUPTED tells the story of seven mothers in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area who lost their children — all under the age of 30– to gun violence.
In the fall of 2013, filmmaker DeShuna Spencer interviewed the moms after meeting them during a Mother’s Tea, a free annual brunch held in the District for parents whose children were murdered. In MOM INTERRUPTED, the mothers speak raw and candidly about of losing their children.
With their words and family photos, the mothers share the pain that they felt when getting the news that their child was murdered, the void that never leaves after burying a child, how they are “coping” with the lose of their child. In addition, they offer solutions that the black community and elected leaders should be doing to curb the violence in our urban communities.
