Praise for the Film: Mei Mei, A Daughter’s Song

“Delighted to watch the premiere film screening of Dmae Roberts’ Mei Mei tonight! An insightful mother/daughter/cultural/history story told and beautifully translated to film! Congratulations to my friend and colleague Dmae, and all involved…may this short be SEEN at film festivals worldwide.” –Nicole Lane, Artists Repertory Theatre

Mei Mei left me spellbound.  Crying.  Shaking.  Grieving.  Feeling validated.  In awe of your ability to put your experience into this art form.  Sharing your story.  Your mother’s story.  For all parents and children. There is something universal about this story.  Yet there is something that no one else can know like you know. Thank you.” —Jane Vogel

“Dmae Roberts touched my heart with her beautiful film tribute to her mother. What a splendid and original piece of documentary art! It was so beautiful and touching. The entire program was wonderful–art, music, food, films, friendships, families! It was an honor to be present at the screening tonight.” –Ronni Lacroute

“Truly a beautiful and heartfelt film. It is inspiring to witness such creativity inspired by love, passion, and resilience! Beauty!” —Luisa Sermol

“Thank you for your wonderful film, Dmae. I also loved the great short by T. Howard. I remember your play at Portland Rep many years ago. Great to see several friends and support these women and honor their mothers. If you are someone seeing this, go out of your way to see Dmae’s film when you hear about the next screening.” –Barry Hunt

“Dmae’s film moves in luscious waves, and T. Howard’s is quite moving, with some gripping historical footage. Congrats to all.” —Bob Hicks, ArtsWatch

“Thank you, Dmae, for the enriching cultural experience on Friday evening. I had such a good sense of your mother – her struggles, her achievements. What a complex women! Your film had a lovely expressionistic style to it – very evocative.” —Devon Allen, Our Shoes Are Red/The Performance Lab
