Ana Lily Amirpour, the director of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and The Bad Batch, is joining us this Saturday night for a Q&A after a screening of her new movie, Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon! Noted for her emphasis on visual and aural storytelling over dialogue-driven narratives, Amirpour’s latest film promises to be another memorable entry in her stylish oevure.
Mona Lisa Lee (Jeon Jong-Seo), escapes from an asylum and the strange abilities that she possesses prove to be dangerous. Newly free, Mona does her best to thrive in the disorderly streets of New Orleans. In the course of trying to make it on her own, she crosses paths with Officer Harold (Craig Robinson) and soft-hearted stripper Bonnie (Kate Hudson).
Since its premiere at the Venice Film Festival in 2021, Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon has received recognition for its thrilling usage of Italian techno and heavy metal on its soundtrack. The film also won Best Original Music at the Catalonian International Film Festival in 2021 and Best Film Score at the Gerardmer Film Festival in 2022
