A man returns to his deceased mother’s house to sort her personal belongings before it goes on sale. There he finds peculiar indications of his mother’s inner life as disturbing poems and strange pictures begin to surface.
Lisa Diaz grew up in a remote part of France where her love of film was made sharp on her father’s eclectic VHS collection.
She studied literature and history at The Sorbonne before working as a continuity girl. Shortly thereafter, she directed her first feature.
Her films span genres: from documentary, to no-budget experimental think pieces. Literature is the driving force in her work, and the thing from which she draws inspiration.
She grew up in a hippie-anarchist family and, as a such, utopia is a recurrent theme in her work. Each film she makes is an experiment and an attempt to build a unique cinematic world. She aims to take the audience on a journey through the perils of humanity, whether it be mad, weak, or fascinating.
Ma Maison can be seen at Eye Myth Film Festival in Toronto on Friday, June 23rd between 7pm & 9:30pm.
