”Mommy Loves Me” is a dramatic film which tells the story of a chronically homeless woman, LeAsia Sweat (Elle Blackwell), who is living on the streets of our nations Capitol. She is addicted to crack, which subsequently renders her homeless and impoverished.
“After witnessing the large homeless population in Los Angeles, California and the District of Columbia – I needed to respond with purpose, meaning and resolve to draw attention to the plight of those that are chronically homeless, particularly young mothers who struggle with substance abuse. After returning home, I saw an opportunity to do something with my ability to tell a story on the screen that would bring a young woman’s tragic life decisions to people that might not necessarily be exposed to this in an understanding sympathetic light.”
– Marlon Russ (director of Mommy Loves Me)
