Behind the Camera:
As a director of horror, one of the overarching “must-haves” in any work I devote myself to is a story that is as powerful as it is entertaining; as thought-provoking as it is nail-biting. HOUSE OF KA is one of these stories. In the wake of the #MeToo Movement, voices of misogyny sink more and more as strong women continue to rise in the film industry. As a female director passionate about representing women overcoming trauma and abuse, as well as representing men who are allies, who can be equally strong and kind, I am thrilled to step into the beautiful, terrifying world of HOUSE OF KA.
In our film, the mummified body of Queen Tiyehotep has been stolen from her tomb and sold for the entertainment and pleasure of elite men in a Victorian society. While historically, the selling and unwrapping of mummies for entertainment was not unheard of, the film explores this through a modern, feministic lens. It mirrors the horrors of human trafficking, objectification of women, and male dominance over a woman’s body. As the spirit of the mummy begins to terrorize the household, Margaret Trelawny, the daughter of Queen Tiyehotep’s buyer, and her close friend Malcolm Ross, a starry-eyed young lawyer, become the voices strong enough to speak for those who have been silenced. While the film has its share of shocks and scares, it is this bravery and opposition to injustice that I hope resonates the most with our audiences…
