THE EYES OF MY MOTHER
A farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. Mother, father, daughter and a stranger. What transpires between them produces a destroyed and destructive soul, a young woman who has been through hell, and inflicts hell on others. In DoP Zach Kuperstein’s precise and yet surreal black and white images, debut director Nicholas Pesce paints a tender nightmare, a filmic monster of melancholy, mercy and massacre.
