Arts Alliance Distribution Acquires American Gothic Horror THE EYES OF MY MOTHER from Filmmaker Nicolas Pesce

26 September 2016

Today Arts Alliance Distribution announces its acquisition of the critically acclaimed American gothic horror THE EYES OF MY MOTHER directed by Nicolas Pesce in UK cinemas early 2017. Arts Alliance will release the film in UK cinemas early 2017 through Park Circus under their Future Classics label. The film will also celebrate its UK festival Premiere at the 60th BFI London Film Festival 2016 on the 9th and 10th October, with the Director in attendance.

The hauntingly beautiful and shockingly original debut from filmmaker Nicolas Pesce stars Kika Magalhaes, Will Brill, Clara Wong, Flora Diaz and Joey Curtis-Green, and is produced by Jacob Wasserman, Schuyler Weiss, Max Born and executive produced by Borderline FilmsAntonio Campos, Sean Durkin and Josh Mond. The film fuses classic horror ingredients with gothic black-and-white imagery and was called the “discovery of this year’s Sundance” by Indiewire’s Eric Kohn where it was in the Official Selection category.




Francisca (played by Kika Magalhaes in a breakout performance) has seemingly been unfazed by death from an early age—her mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, imbued her with a thorough understanding of the human anatomy. When tragedy shatters her family’s idyllic life in the countryside, her deep trauma gradually awakens some unique curiosities. As she grows up, her desire to connect with the world around her takes a distinctly dark form.

THE EYES OF MY MOTHER will feature in the 60th BFI London Film Festival 2016 on the following dates:

9 Oct 18:30 - Prince Charles Cinema

10 Oct 13:15 - NFT3 (BFI Southbank)
