USA 2008. Director: Azazel Jacobs
Post-screening discussion with Dr. Endre Koritar

The idea for Momma’s Man came to the director one morning on a visit to his parents. On waking to find coffee and cereal waiting for him, filmmaker Azazel Jacobs wondered then why he had ever moved out. In the film, which revolves around the childhood regression of Mikey (Matt Boren), a thirty-something computer programmer with a wife and baby, Jacobs has merged his life into fiction by casting his real parents, Ken Jacobs, the noted avant-garde filmmaker and artist Flo Jacobs, a painter, in the roles of Mikey’s parents.
