Home / Now Showing / HUESERA
Motherhood and the occult collide in violent and terrifying fashion in Michelle Garza Cervera’s brilliant debut that ended up winning not one but well-deserved awards at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. For Valeria, pregnancy has been a long-term goal along with her husband that has somehow always eluded them. When the couple finally succeed, they’re both over the moon. However as the pregnancy progresses, Valeria finds herself beginning to get haunted by visions and other supernatural occurrences which forces her to question her sanity – what is the cause of all these terrifying phenomena that now surrounds her? The answer may lay deeper than she’s prepared to look. A stellar debut that is both smart in its examination of the meaning of motherhood for an independent young woman and frightening in its execution as a horror film, HUESERA is the brilliant first step in the career of a new director who announces her arrival as a bold and brilliant voice with a precise and soul-shaking film.
