New Decade are thrilled to announce the world premiere of Sam Jones’s film “My Lost Russian Mother” at the Galway Film Fleadh on Friday 14th July!

An intimate tale of secrets and lies, family and ethnicity and one young man’s odyssey from America to Russia, searching for his birth mother, this is Irish filmmaker Sam Jones’s first feature documentary.

The film follows US citizen Gabe, trying to trace the mother he and his sister were taken from in childhood when they were adopted into America. Gabe arrives in Russia high on expectation. He wants to know who he is and the truth about his childhood. What he finds is not the loving parent he hoped for.
