SYNOPSIS

The Eyes Of My Mother. First time filmmaker, Nicolas Pesce created the “discovery of this year’s Sundance” (Eric Kohn, Indiewire) with The Eyes of My Mother; a striking debut displaying an assured understanding of extreme horror, a sympathetic eye for intimate character study and a reinvigorated interpretation of the American Gothic tradition.

Set in and around a remote farmhouse, it tells the story of Francisca: a young woman left shaken by childhood trauma whose attempts to connect with the wider world take a distinctly dark form as she enacts the surgical training her absent mother equipped her with as a child. Realising its grisly concept through nuanced performance and considered monochrome photography, The Eyes of My Mother is a hybrid creation of lingering beauty and gnawing dread. Executive produced by Borderline Films (Christine, Martha Marcy May Marlene).
