Claire Fowler is a writer-director from Wales, and 'Mum's Not In' is her final project in completion of her MFA. After studying at Oxford University and the Royal College of Art she made a number of human rights-themed documentary films which screened at festivals internationally, including the Sheffield Docfest, the International Human Rights Watch Festival and the International Film festival Rotterdam. Her work has been supported by the Fulbright commission, the PEO foundation, South West Screen, the British Council and the Academy Foundation. She is currently working on her third feature length screenplay, a script that shares many of the same preoccupations as 'Mum's not in' and hopes the short will contribute to her ambition of realizing the feature in the not so distant future.
