Mamma With A Vengeance

All cast and crew are from North Carolina.

Regina McKenzie is a resident of Wilmington, NC. She is a breast cancer survivor. "Mamma..." was filmed prior to the cancer diagnosis.

We are honored to dedicate "Mamma..." to Regina McKenzie, and grateful to have the film completed and ready for exhibition.

It is the hope of Regina McKenzie and the rest of the production-team that our film will help as a conversation starter in the discussion to end and prevent spousal abuse, child abuse and drug related abuse.
