Single Mom Made, Single Mom Approved

New Short Film 'Bump)ED' Looks at Life of Black Single Mother

July 1, 2014 | Sergio, Indiewire.com

The recently completed film [Bump)ED], thanks to a Kickstarter campaign, and written and directed by Aisha Brown (an MFA [candidate] in Cinema Directing from Columbia College Chicago), reflects on the realities of Ms. Brown's own life.

I feel like mothers are not represented well in the industry, especially young Black single mothers. I would like to use my platform as a film director to tell the story of young mothers with a refreshingly comedic authenticity. Many times, our stories (young mothers) are told by people who have not been in that situation.
