SCARY MOTHER
2017, 107 min, Georgia/Estonia, Dir: Ana Urushadze

Fifty-year-old Manana (Nato Murvanidze) has long put her literary ambitions on the back burner to serve her husband (Dimitri Tatishvili); when he learns she has been working on a sexually explicit novel, he hits the roof. Winner of the top prize at the Sarajevo Film Festival and Best First Feature at the Locarno International Film Festival. “A compelling mix of domestic drama and psychological thriller. … Unusually assured for a debut feature, with a strong visual aesthetic and a healthy streak of absurdist humor, SCARY MOTHER is further proof that Georgia’s emergent new wave of young filmmakers still has plenty of juice in the tank.” - Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter.
