A dash of youth, a pinch of age, and an unrecorded recipe: Mudder’s Hands is a charming documentary short centered around the tradition of baking Newfoundland raisin bread. Featuring an original score by Virginia Kilbertus and edited by Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Karen Shopsowitz, Mudder’s Hands shines a light on arthritis, and blends laughter and loss with its baking tips. Clint Butler’s sweet directorial debut is not only a tribute to seniors and their resiliency, but also a reminder of the value in calling your mother more often.
