Filmed in 3 countries over the course of 3 years, LATE FOR MY MOTHER'S FUNERAL is the intimate portrait of a Moroccan family residing in Algeria who are adrift following the death of their mother Zineb, a notorious smuggler of gold and precious jewels. This turbulent family story brings to life cross-border identities, the influence of political context on individual lives, and the importance of the mother figure in Arab/Islamic cultures.
A Franco-American living in Paris, Penny Allen made her directorial debut in 1978 with PROPERTY, which was a prizewinner at the very first Sundance Festival, and she followed that with PAYDIRT in 1981. A writer, journalist and university teacher, she returned to directing in 2008 with A SOLDIER'S TALE and she recently made a documentary short, The Didier Connection (2013).
