Rent MAMA / M.A.M.A. on DVD


2003 Rated NR 1hr 40m

Filmmaker Nonny de la Peña uncovers the rarely explored but fascinating topic of Munchausen's syndrome by proxy, a form of child abuse in which a mother fabricates symptoms of illness in her child to elicit sympathy from doctors. Through a series of interviews with children, parents and members of the medical community -- and an eye-opening experiment -- de la Peña raises previously unasked questions about this disturbing disorder.
