Magnolia Pictures’ Magnet Releasing revealed the trailer & poster for The Eyes of My Mother, an upcoming American Drama Horror film written, edited and directed by Nicolas Pesce.
The film stars Diana Agostini, Olivia Bond, Will Brill, Joey Curtis-Green, Flora Diaz, Kika Magalhaes, Paul Nazak & Clara Wong.
“In their secluded farmhouse, a mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, teaches her daughter, Francisca, to understand anatomy and be unfazed by death. One afternoon, a mysterious visitor shatters the idyll of Francisca’s family life, deeply traumatizing the young girl, but also awakening unique curiosities.
Though she clings to her increasingly reticent father, Francisca’s loneliness and scarred nature converge years later when her longing to connect with the world around her takes on a dark form.
Shot in crisp black and white, the haunting visual compositions 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 feature debut allows only an elliptical presence in Francisca’s world, guiding our imaginations to follow her into peculiar, secret places.”
Produced by Borderline Presents and Tandem Pictures.
It premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival to a polarizing reception and was acquired by Magnet Releasing.
The Eyes of My Mother is set to open theatrically, On Demand, iTunes and Amazon Video on December 2, 2016.
