The Eyes of My Mother (2016) | Don’t watch this haunting horror alone!

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.

The Eyes of My Mother

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.

Out in cinemas in the UK and Ireland from Friday 24 March from Park Circus
