After having his debut feature, Woman of the Photographs, selected for FrightFest 2020, director Takeshi Kushida is back with his second film My Mother's Eyes

The film tells the story of Hitomi, a cello instructor and single mother, and her daughter Eri. After a magnificent duet at Eri's school concert they are involved in a major car accident, from which they emerge badly injured. Hitomi loses her eyesight and Eri is paralyzed from the neck down.

In desperation, Hitomi finds a new, still experimental contact lens device that restores her vision. Eri falls into depression and despair in her paralyzed state, so Hitomi has the idea of helping her daughter live a quality life again by combining her new contact lens eyes with VR goggles connecting their two eyesights into a shared vision through web transmission.

Director Kushida adds:

Films are illusions that tell us about reality. What should films tell us in today’s world where, with the advent of ever new technology, the boundaries between truth and illusion become blurred? If the fascination of films were an acknowledgement of mankind’s endeavors, then even the illusions, will they not also be a valid part of man’s eternal quest for truth? MY MOTHER’S EYES is a story of two people who achieve love and truth through illusory and imaginary bodies. My belief is that, living in these extraordinary times, we can still attain the joys of living by accepting that we are not as “real” as we think we are.
