After her mother disappears without explanation, Kay takes her daughter Sam to their weather-beaten, crumbling family home. There, the mother suddenly reappears but doesn’t seem herself anymore, showing increasing signs of dementia. Is her progressively erratic behavior only due to her illness, or is something else nesting in the old house? Jet-black and labyrinthine, Natalie Erika James’s feature debut is a psychologically intricate single-location horror movie in which three generations of women fight against oblivion and decay. A very sinister affair.

Natalie Erika James
is a Japanese-Australian writer, director, and producer based in Melbourne, Australia.

Relic is her debut feature. James is currently developing Drum Wave, a Japanese folk horror with development support from Screen Australia and Film Victoria. Drum Wave was one of 14 projects selected for the project market at the International Film Festival & Awards Macao, and won the Best Co-Production prize.
