Please join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend and our special guest filmmaker Rustin Thompson for an online screening of the award-winning, locally produced, and very personal My Mother Was Here. We’ll watch the film together on Zoom (registration details below) and have a Q&A session following the film. It’s like the Meaningful Movies you’re used to, but online!

Donna is 84-years old. She lives alone on the property she’s owned for over half a century in rural Washington State, with a mobile home and a house that are both cluttered with junk. She exists on a school bus driver’s pension, social security, and Medicare. She’s never had a credit card, never voted, and never flown on an airplane. Quietly stubborn, she is estranged from all surviving members of her family, except for one — her son, the filmmaker — who rarely visits her. When her health begins to fail, she calls on him.

PLEASE NOTE: This screening will be hosted online via Zoom only; there is no physical event. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED! Please visit to register.

Contact Meaningful Movies via Facebook or email ( if you have any questions.
