We’ve always wanted to make a film that stems from our personal experience of growing up with a bipolar mother. While the details were changed, we were the little girls that sometimes longed for normality and we were afraid of what might await us at home after school.
Mental illnesses often stay ignored by society and people who suffer from them are excluded from their community. We believe it is important to raise awareness on the issue, because these illnesses affect more than the sick. This film is told from the point of view of the children, especially from the older daughter’s, to convey the effect on their lives.
Forget Me Not is above all the call of a child that needs its mother, no matter how imperfect she may be.
