A part of MUSIC BOX OF HORRORS 2017 | Director Mariano Baino in person for a post-film Q&A!
A girl travels to an island after the death of her father to find out why he funded a monastery. Once there, she finds a malevolent order of nuns with seemingly no escape from the menacing evil that inhabits the strange island.
"Dreamy, original and haunting, it's a masterpiece of arthouse horror." Scott Macaulay, FILMMAKER MAGAZINE
"An ambitious tale of horror with lofty aspirations and little sense of conformity... a talent worth nurturing." SIGHT AND SOUND
Hailed by Montreal's FantAsia Film Festival (where his feature film, DARK WATERS, won the sought-after Prix Du Public) as "one of the great torchbearers for expressionistic genre cinema" , Mariano Baino has been honored with a very exclusive "Extraordinary Ability" Green Card by the US Government, thanks to his talent as an artist and film director.
His film, DARK WATERS, which won the "Vincent Price Award for outstanding contribution to fantastic cinema" at Rome's FantaFestival, has been described, among its many accolades, as"an unholy hybrid of Bergman and Argento" by Film Review magazine, and received prestigious gala screenings at the legendary Lincoln Center in New York, as well as the National Cinema Museum in Turin, Italy.
