Plot Synopsis

Continuing what she started in the short-form series GREEN PORNO, actress Isabella Rossellini now takes on animal motherhoood in MAMMAS, a series of nine short films. Rossellini writes, directs and slips into the role of animal mother, playing non-traditional creatures and the different ways their maternal instincts are put into action in nature. From cuckoos who willingly hand their young to another mother to fiercely loving wasps who bury animals alive for baby food, MAMMAS portrays the varying ways mothers provide for their offspring. Sundance Channel aired the broadcast premiere of MAMMAS on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12, 2013 at 5:30pm, showing all nine episodes in 30 minutes of airtime. Previously, MAMMAS was shown at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2013, as part of Berlin's Forum Expanded program.
