The Eyes of My Mother

Nicolas Pesce, 2016, United States
English, sub. French, 76′
Swiss premiere

In the depth of the American countryside, Francisca’s life gets thrown out of balance when a psychopath comes out of the blue brutally murdering her mother. Enough said, revealing more of the plot would spoil it. Shot in sumptuous black and white by young director Nicolas Pesce (26 year-old), screenwriter and editor in one person, the film dives into the abysses of winding solitude and gives the viewer no time to breathe.
