‘Mama Got A Cough’ – Zoom Shot Short Film
31 May 2020
The 14-minute film stars Brooks, Amber Chardae Robinson, Brittany Inge, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Juanita Jennings, Dewayne Perkins and Marcel Spears in a story about a group of siblings trying to convince their ailing mother to go to the doctor to check if her cough is actually the coronavirus.
Even while the subject matter is serious, no one can get through the call without roasting reach other while spreading family love.
Brooks posted a snippet of the video on her Instagram account, congratulating Cooper on making the film.
“I love you brother,” she wrote. “You are an incredible writer and I had a blast co-producing this with you in the middle of diaper changes. Love you bro.”
She also wrote she hopes the video “uplifts your spirits during this time and reminds you how important it is to check in with the ones you love.”
