Scary Mother | Sashishi Deda | Dir: Ana Urushadze | Country: Georgia/Estonia

A middle age housewife, Manana, struggles with her dilemma – she has to choose between her family life and her passion, writing, which she had repressed for years – she decides to follow her passion and plunges herself into writing, sacrificing to it mentally and physically.


In Competition, 9th Festival de Cinema Europeen Des Arcs


“Further proof that Georgia’s emergent new wave of young film-makers still has plenty of juice in the tank. With prizes and positive reviews making a solid case for niche theatrical business.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Bold debut enveloped in a transfixing style, preserving the ambiguity of borderline derangement. It’s a fever dream translated into the aesthetics of Eastern European social realism.” – Screen Anarchy

“Freedom, ferocity and freakiness in Ana Urushadze’s darkly daring debut” – Variety
