ARTS ALLIANCE DISTRIBUTION ACQUIRES AMERICAN GOTHIC HORROR
‘THE EYES OF MY MOTHER’
Every so often a film comes along that creates a mild underlying buzz on the internet that looks to become a future classic. The last time i recall a film that made me take notice was A girl walks home alone at night, And now we have the release and distribution through the Arts alliance of " The eyes of my mother" It struck me as similar in tone from what i have seen to that and also the classic Eyes without a face. I have put the press release below and be sure to watch this space for a review coming very soon,
The hauntingly beautiful and shockingly original debut from filmmaker Nicolas Pesce stars Kika Magalhaes, Will Brill, Clara Wong, Flora Diaz and Joey Curtis-Green, is produced by Jacob Wasserman, Schuyler Weiss, Max Born, and executive produced by Borderline Films’ Antonio Campos, Sean Durkin and Josh Mond. The film fuses classic horror ingredients with gothic black-and-white imagery and was called the “discovery of this year’s Sundance” by Indiewire’s Eric Kohn, where it was in the Official Selection category.
Francisca (played by Kika Magalhaes in a breakout performance) has seemingly 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.
THE EYES OF MY MOTHER will feature in the 60th BFI London Film Festival 2016 on the following dates:
9 Oct 18:30 Prince Charles Cinema
10 Oct 13:15 NFT3 (BFI Southbank)
