It All Started With Mom
  • Director: Catherine O’Brien
  • Producers: Catherine O’Brien
  • Screenwriters: Catherine O’Brien

It All Started With Mom documents a family’s perspective of meeting and courting suitable partners. The filmmaker, Catherine O’Brien, is the main subject of the storyline. However as she began to chronicle her adventure, she realized that every female member of her immediate family was in the same position—single. How does an 85-year-old widow approach the dating world versus a 15-year-old bi-curious feminist? Through interviews and clever animations by the filmmaker’s husband, it is humorous examination of three generations and six decades of dating rituals.
