Magnificent … A radiant yet destabilizing debut feature film which manages to masterfully combine social drama, Cronenberg-style horror, mysticism, and modernity.”

Muriel Del Don, Cineuropa

After their mother is forced to return to the Philippines, sisters Emy (Abigael Loma) and Teresa (Hasmine Killip) live a quiet life within their tight-knit Filipino Catholic community in the port of Athens. But when Teresa gets pregnant, Emy is drawn to an overwhelming and mysterious inner force. Winner of Best Film Director (Lemos) and Best Supporting Actress (Hasmine Killip) at the 2022 Hellenic Film Academy Awards, Holy Emy provides an unusually fresh take on the place of new immigrants to Greece, and displays remarkable, assured, and fascinating performances.
