Drama | Female Director | Literary

Winner of the Best First Feature prize at the Locarno Film Festival and the top prize at the Sarajevo Film Festival, Ana Urushadze’s arresting debut centres on 50-year-old Tbilisi resident Manana (Nato Murvanidze), an aspiring author who has kept her literary ambitions in check. Now, she is desperate to express herself, and is encouraged by local store owner Nukri (Ramaz Ioseliani), who believes she has written a masterpiece. Her family aren’t so supportive when they hear of a sexually explicit text that has autobiographical parallels. Scary Mother is an arresting feminist parable with a strong visual aesthetic and a dollop of absurdist humour.
