Hi, It’s Your Mother

A stop-motion short by Daniel Sterlin-Altman.

”Hilarious and refreshing” – The Concordian
”not unlike David Lynch’s ’Blue Velvet'” – Ars Independent Festival

Mum’s calling, and Lisa isn’t pleased. ”Hi, It’s Your Mother” is a shocking tragi-comedic stop motion short about family and blood(y) ties.
