    Press

    Holy Emy is a radiant yet destabilising debut feature film which manages to masterfully combine social drama, Cronenberg-style horror (the Mantle brothers are never too far away), mysticism and modernity, treating the audience to a veritable inner journey which gets to the very heart of what we commonly call “the other”.
