Sinopsis: Momma's Man chronicles the increasingly anxious dilemma faced by Mikey, a young husband and father who stops off at his parents' loft during a business trip to New York and finds himself emotionally unable to leave. The film is both a tribute to the filmmaker's parents (avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs and painter Flo Jacobs, who play Mikey's mother and father) and an acutely perceptive, slyly humorous take on a universal experience: the fear of growing up.

Azazel Jacobs (1972) studied film at SUNY Purchase and at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. His films are Kirk and Kerry (1997), Nobody Needs To Know (2003) and The GoodTimesKid (2005). Momma's Man was released in the States last summer and will be shortly in France, England and Greece.
