Director Nicolas Pesce will be appearing in Chicago at the DePaul Humanities Center for their 5th annual Halloween event on Monday, October 30th, 2017. His film, The Eyes of My Mother, will be screening in addition to the other exhibits that make up the annual event.
The Horror of the Humanities V event will feature an avant-garde “haunted house,” which is composed of installation art, interactive posters, multimedia, and exhibits examining the horrors within everyday life and the connection between horror and humanity. These exhibits have been paired with the horror screening and discussion in order to further push a stronger focus on the subject.
- 6:00pm-6:30pm - “Haunted House” interactive Halloween exhibit
- 6:30pm-7:45pm - The Eyes of My Mother screening
- 7:45pm-9:00pm - Conversation and Q&A with director Nicolas Pesce
The Eyes of My Mother follows the story of an extremely lonely, isolated young woman who experiences a terrible tragedy while living on a quiet farm with her parents. The medical knowledge she gained from her mother comes in handy (in disturbing ways) when she begins reaching out to connect to the outside world. Starring Kika Magalhães, Will Brill, and Olivia Bond. Filmed in black-and-white.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Discounted parking available.
