Program Note

Maud is a reclusive young nurse with an extreme Christian devotion after suffering from a mysterious trauma. She is assigned a hospice care of Amanda, a retired dancer stricken with severe form of cancer; and as Maud’s devout faith leads her to an obsession to save Amanda’s soul from everlasting damnation, she intends to do so at whatever the cost.

An impressive and daring feature debut by Rose Glass, Saint Maud is spell, psychological horror film that questions religious fanaticism and direct communication with God in disturbing, unpredictable yet occasionally humorous ways. Maud (played brilliantly by Morfydd Clark) dedicates total care to Amanda (played by Jennifer Ehle) but loathes her free lifestyle involving occasional booze and drugs. As their relationship escalates with a touch of sexual jealousy, Maud’s tormented emotion leads to the tragic point of no return. (Jongsuk Thomas NAM)
