THE FILMS

Goodnight Mommy (Severin Fiala, Veronika Franz | Austria | 99 min.)
When their mother comes home with facial bandages after surgery, twin brothers Lukas and Elias don't recognize her and refuse to believe she is who she claims to be. Their imaginations run wild and take a dark turn as they become more and more suspicious and fearful.

Gorgeously lensed in a modern house within the Austrian countryside, this story unfolds through the perspectives of the boys as the dramatic tension builds steadily toward a fever pitch. The horror element is deeply rooted in psychological reality, with the boys’ insecurities and lack of maternal affection manifesting into a hatred and mistrust that leads them down a dark and gruesome path. Goodnight Mommy is a fresh new voice in the horror genre and draws influence from arthouse classics in telling this twisted tale.

MUSIC

Faten Kanaan
Brooklyn- based Faten Kanaan uses vintage synthesizers to slowly build songs on stage that are inspired by cinematic forms: from sweeping landscapes and quiet unrequited love stories, to the patterned tension of 1970s horror film soundtracks. Kanaan focuses on bringing a human touch to electronic music that highlights the limitations and relationships between man, nature, and machine: the drifting of time, the dystopic grittiness, and the bittersweet (but hopeful) sense of nostalgia.
