The haunting chiller THE EYES OF MY MOTHER will head to theaters in NYC and LA soon. The Nicolas Pesce feature follows a young woman coming of age in a very macabre form. Look for the film starting December 2nd. More release dates to follow but if you are in NYC & LA go check out this visual stunner when it’s available.
Francisca has been unfazed by death from an early age—her mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, imbued her with a thorough understanding of the human anatomy. When tragedy shatters her family’s idyllic life in the countryside, her deep trauma gradually awakens some unique curiosities. As she grows up, her desire to connect with the world around her takes a distinctly dark form.
Shot in crisp black and white, the haunting visual compositions of THE EYES OF MY MOTHER evoke its protagonist’s isolation and illuminate her deeply unbalanced worldview. Genre-inflected but so strikingly unique as to defy categorization, writer/director Nicolas Pesce’s stunning feature debut allows us only an elliptical presence in Francisca’s world, guiding our imaginations to follow her into peculiar, secret places.
Produced by Max Born, Jacob Wasserman and Schuyler Weiss. Executive produced by Antonio Campos (CHRISTINE), Sean Durkin (MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE) and Josh Mond (JAMES WHITE).
