A mixtape of home movies, broadcast news, and heart-spoken letters, MOMMY, I'M A BASTARD is one filmmaker’s portrait of the three diverse families linked by his adoption. But what begins as a joyous tribute to kinship soon evolves into something different with the emergence of a lingering feud between his biological families.

Written, directed, and produced by Max Barbakow.
