Abstract:

Among the many challenges faced by Ken Wardrop when making Undressing My Mother was a need to meet a number of potentially competing responsibilities that arose in part from the degree of self-revelation to which his mother had agreed. This article will focus on the film-maker's ultimate success in balancing those responsibilities.
