The mother loses her sight while the daughter is paralyzed but thanks to technological, medical advances, they are able to combine their faculties to share one vision and physical experiences.

The film was also produced by Kushida under the banner of Pyramid Film in Tokyo.

My Mother’s Eyes is Kushida’s second feature after international breakout Woman of the Photographs, which played in 40 festivals and was released in seven territories, including the U.S. where it was acquired by Epic Pictures for its speciality horror label Dread.

“We have been following Takeshi work since Woman of the Photographs in 2020 and we felt in love with his unique filmmaking. His second feature My Mother’s Eyes confirms his talent as a director, mastering the art of combining strong visual and innovative storytelling,” said Reel Suspects President Matteo Lovadina.
