Leading Moms: Hip Hop Mom

On October 3, 2012 teamed up with our friends at Modern Mama and Entrepreneur Mom Now Vancouver to present Leading Moms. The day was full of inspiration, as we highlighted moms who are difference-makers in a variety of fields, from fashion to politics to business to the arts to science, and a whole lot more. We were treated to talks, videos, musical performances and a fashion show. We ate breakfast inside the H.R. MacMillan Science Centre, and we ate lunch outside in the sunshine. We were energized and motivated by the whole experience.

Mina Shum

Filmmaker Mina Shum tells the story of two alpha supermoms fighting over a parking spot, and quickly revealing their secret identities. Before you know it, the short film Hip Hop Mom turns into a hip hop mom dance battle. This irreverent ode to moms everywhere has won awards at the Berlin, Toronto and Sundance film festivals and the Genies. About Hip Hop Mom, Shum says, “I have felt the need to express my irreverent, irresponsible self at times. And when I do, I’m so aware of the ‘mommy me’ and the ‘not so mommy me’. And both sides have to find their expression or we end up losing our true selves.”
