In her final hours an elderly woman reveals the mysterious tale of her youth living amid a vampiric mother.
Now in her final moments Emelia; an elderly woman residing at the Glenmorgan Nursing Home in Phoenix Alberta, confesses a long buried secret. While being tended to by the night nurse she pulls her aside to tell the story of her childhood and of how she lived with a vampire mother. Emelia divulges in the torrid deeds she had to commit in order to keep her mother's true identity a secret; and of how in time she came to understand her with an empathetic eye in spite of her possession.
Welcome to the Castle Acadia team! We are so excited to be able to share our story with you! If you are interested in joining our production of 'Moja Mama' we are currently seeking an experienced Cinematographer and Production Designer.
Now 100 years old, Emelia was born and raised in the fictitious town of Phoenix Alberta in the early 1900's. From birth until 12 years of age she resided at the Red Cross Children's home, a place for displaced and orphaned children. Emelia was never told much about her parents, only that she was brought to the home when she was a newborn. She was routinely ostracized by her peers for her appearance and hostility and never knew the warmth of a loving family. Until one fateful evening a ghoulish woman named Evelyn spirited her away.
Emelia's adoptive mother. Once a Polish Immigrant who traveled with her husband to Canada. After making their journey Evelyn was cursed with vampirism and now must feed on humans in order to live eternally. Her reasons are unclear as to why she chose Emelia as her mortal companion, but it is certain in time she grew increasingly fond of her and truly embraced her as her own daughter. Though her condition proved to be exceedingly difficult to disguise from the ever curious girl.
A Polish surgeon and former husband to Evelyn that migrated with her to Pheonix Alberta. Oskar once discovering that his newlywed wife Evelyn was unable to bear children had her locked in an asylum. Never taught the common language she was unable to communicate her distress and Oskar forged annulment papers, allowing him to marry another woman.
