About the Film: The iMom is a dark look into the black mirror of a society where technology has exceeded humanity

The iMom will change your life! Well, at least that’s what the ads claim. In this horror science fiction, when a mother leaves her kids under the supervision of the family’s iMom, a dark biblical link is realized.

From the film-maker: It was only after the millionth time I saw a kid sitting obediently at a restaurant table, staring silently at their parent’s iPad that I wanted to tell a story about how tech products have seeped into family life. Originally I only intended to shoot a 2-minute YouTube clip of a mock-infomercial for a fictional child-rearing product. However once I edited the clip together, I started imagining a world beyond the ad. How would a family interact with Siri if she were actually walking around the home? In the end, I decided to both weave projects, the infomercial and narrative short, into one film.
