Antoinette Jadaone, fresh from the success of “Fan Girl,” may be working on a surprise short film release soon.
As Jadaone shared, fans may not have to wait too long to see the new film from the multi-award-winning filmmaker. As a director who has reached acclaim for providing different and refreshing takes on the well-explored themes of love and commitment, Jadaone has shared that her new film will take on a theme that’s close to her heart: Mother’s Day.
“It’s been too long since I last directed a film, and I’m happy this is a story that’s close to my heart. This isn’t going to be a romantic story but is still about unyielding and steadfast love nonetheless,” shared Jadaone. Pandemic withstanding, Jadaone has been busy the past month to ensure the film goes out on Mother’s Day May 9, with a special release on social media.
When asked what the story is about, Jadaone replied, “Mothers come in all shapes and sizes. We don’t know what they’ve been through or going through. In this story particularly, we look at one special side of motherhood – one that we don’t hear being talked about very much. Although it is quite familiar to a lot of us.”
Jadaone ends, “We hope we can somehow ‘hold the hands’ of mothers who are experiencing or have experienced the same thing as in the film.”
Here’s looking forward to the new story that Jadaone has crafted.
