The Film


Laura Moss | US | 98

Rose (Marin Ireland) is a pathologist who prefers working with corpses over social interaction. She also has an obsession — the reanimation of the dead. Celie (Judy Reyes) is a maternity nurse who has built her life around her bouncy, chatterbox six-year-old daughter, Lila (A.J. Lister). When one tragic night, Lila suddenly falls ill and dies, the two women's worlds crash into each other. They embark on a dark path of no return where they will be forced to confront how far they are willing to go to protect what they hold most dear. This standout directorial debut from Laura Moss reimagines Mary Shelley’s classic horror myth Frankenstein with such a contemporary understanding that it becomes something exciting, terrifying, and singularly new.

Their musical genesis beginning in NYC, the now LA based duo, MOTHERMARY makes retro-futuristic-electro-art-pop steeped in sacrilege.<br><br>Named after the mother of Christ, the ultimate symbol of religious hypocrisy and the impossible expectations placed on women, the bicoastal project is the brainchild of identical twins Elyse & Larena, who grew up in a Mormon family in Missoula, Montana, the youngest of nearly a dozen children. “It was our world… our paradigm,” Larena says about those days. “We were brainwashed.”<br><br>MOTHERMARY served their mesmerizing debut, I Am Your God, via Italians Do It Better. A Sin Wave work of Art Pop that’s utterly singular, a dazzling hybrid of the old and the new. Featured in Pitchfork, The Fader, Gorilla Vs. Bear, Mojo and Record Collector to name a few they have been described as "A glorious celebration of blasphemy" and "A debut offering that's by turns thrilling, creepy, and unabashedly sexy."<br><br>“I Am Your God isn’t about a god complex, though we do enjoy power play, rather it’s an invitation to ponder what you worship and why. It’s about women reclaiming their holiness and inviting you to acknowledge your own. It’s about who we choose for our modern Gods as we let go of the bearded white men of the past." - Elyse and Larena
