Jan’s mom

His mom in prison, Jan works up the courage to discuss her feelings, and his own

A year ago, 11-year-old Jan Meijer’s mother was arrested and sent to prison. Jan misses her terribly, and worries constantly about her wellbeing. In Jan’s Mom, the director Anneloor van Heemstra tells Jan’s story with sensitivity and patience, following Jan as he talks to his friends and family about his worries, and – as visiting day approaches – builds up the courage to ask his mother about her time in prison, face to face.

Director: Anneloor van Heemstra
