Raging Grace (2023)

Joy, an undocumented Filipino immigrant who is struggling to do the best she can for her daughter when she secures the perfect job: taking care of an extremely wealthy but terminal old man. The new position pays well and guarantees a roof over their heads. But very soon, Joy and her daughter Grace start to realize everything is not as it seems. Something is festering beneath the surface, threatening all they have worked for.

 

Brainstorm Media distributes in the US.

Filmed in England, UK.

Director Paris Zarcilla was quoted saying: “This is truly a coming of rage for so many of us. Being an immigrant, and more so an undocumented one is often a horrific experience for so many. It was a very natural genre to occupy when writing this story. But I felt it was paramount that the film didn’t live solely in horror where these characters only experience trauma. Minority stories often feel exclusively steeped in trauma but this needed to be a cathartic spectacle that gave way to rage but most importantly joy and celebration of our culture. I want this to be a cathartic spectacle.”

The feature film directorial debut of Paris Zarcilla.

Also described as a “bold coming-of-rage story.”

This is a UK horror drama that’s described as a “nightmarish fever dream from an exciting new voice.”
