Nanny

  •   Nikyatu Jusu
  •   United States

In this psychological horror fable of displacement, Aisha (Anna Diop), a woman who recently emigrated from Senegal, is hired to care for the daughter of an affluent white couple living in New York City. Haunted by the absence of the young son she left behind, Aisha hopes her new job will afford her the chance to bring him to the U.S., but becomes increasingly unsettled by the family’s volatile home life. As his arrival approaches, a violent presence begins to invade both her dreams and her reality, threatening the American dream she is painstakingly piecing together. Winner of Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize and featuring a stunning performance by Anna Diop and spectacular visual effects expressing the protagonist’s inner turmoil, Nanny is a timely, unsettling, and resonant story of motherhood and the Black immigrant experience.
