Scary Mother

1 Hr. 59 Min.

Screening format: DCP

A middle-aged mother throws herself wholly into the obsessive creative work of becoming a novelist, abandoning her family in a full-fledged pursuit of creative freedom that is equal turns darkly comedic and tensely surreal, as she finds herself increasingly lost in the space between fact and her ongoing fiction. A fully realized feature debut (with a tightly coiled lead performance from Nata Murvanidze) that highlights the danger inherent in suppressing
the creative urge, Scary Mother is a dark plunge into the feverish imagination of a brilliantly troubled woman.
