THE EYES OF MY MOTHER
Dir. Nicolas Pesce
The Final Girls present a special 35mm screening of monochrome nightmare THE EYES OF MY MOTHER.
Shot in crisp black-and-white, Nicholas Pesce’s debut feature tells the coming of age story of Francisca (Kika Magalhaes), a young woman exploring her ever-evolving morbid curiosities. Living a quiet existence on a secluded farmhouse somewhere in neglected rural America, Francisca’s life is irrevocably disrupted by an unwelcome visitor that shatters her family and unchains a series of increasingly violent rituals. A disturbingly gorgeous examination of madness, loneliness and obsession, THE EYES OF MY MOTHER makes for a twisted Mother’s Day treat
