Producer Ross Schriftman and Director Kevin Hackenberg, have won a prestigious Award of Excellence from The Best Shorts Film Competition. The award was given for the moving drama, My Million Dollar Mom, which highlights the difficult choices we have to make between our life goals and the needs of a loved one who is ill. My Million Dollar Mom features an exceptional story inspired by the experience of writer and producer Ross Schriftman, who cared for his mom Shirley, who died from Alzheimer’s; a form of dementia. Moving performances included Pete Postiglione, portraying Ross, Susan Moses, portraying Shirley, and Hollywood actor Currie Graham, portraying the Governor. The film takes audiences through the push-pull of the decision Ross faced about whether to accept an offer to run for Congress, a life-long dream, while deciding how he would care for his mom who wished to remain at home.
A musical score by Curtis Institute composer Chelsea Komschlies and the beautiful Jewish Mi Shebeirach prayer of healing and courage for care givers, written and performed by the late Debbie Freedman, surround this endearing film. “I am so pleased with the great performance of our actors, the work of our experienced production team, and the composers and musicians that helped us bring our story to audiences so that they can better understand dementia, care giving and long-term care issues.” said Schriftman.
