Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon

-

Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon follows a girl with unusual and dangerous powers who escapes from a mental asylum and tries to make it on her own in New Orleans. With exciting sequences set to thrilling music including Italian Techno and Heavy Metal, this fantasy-adventure film is sure to invoke memories of the 1980s and 1990s.

Iranian-American director Ana Lily Amirpour’s third feature, Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon, is a perfect complement to her directorial debut, the black-and-white vampire revenge film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014). Offering a similar subversion of genre, it’s a fantasy thriller grounded in the horrors of reality

Growing up in America I was always aware that I was an outsider. We came from somewhere else, spoke a different language, and it was hard to know where I fit. The fantasy films I loved as a kid gave power to the outsider. I found heroes in them that made me feel seen and fueled my quest for personal freedom. In my films the biggest antagonist is the system, and how it forces certain behavior onto us, and ultimately affects how we see each other and where we find belonging. With Mona Lisa, I wanted to create a new type of hero who faces the problems of a modern and twisted reality. An adventure-fairytale to explore what personal freedom is in a chaotic society that makes it hard to feel free. (Ana Lily Amirpour)
