“This film is very personal to me as I made it with my own children. As a mother, nothing is scarier than the thought of losing a child. It was a very challenging artistic process. Every one involved was passionate about the project, I’m happy that our team is getting recognized for their effort.”, says director Isabel Dréan.
Let Go tells the story of a mother struggling with the tragic loss of her daughter. The film comes fresh off its world premiere to an enthusiastic and packed house at Montreal’s prestigious Fantasia International Film Festival, where it competed in the Official Selection and with its US Premiere at the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival in Beverly Hills, CA.
