film synopsis

An American security professional and a young Moroccan woman forge an unusual connection across time zones in the latest from War Witch (PSIFF 2013) director Kim Nguyen.

Gordon works the night shift at a global security company, monitoring an oil pipeline in Northern Africa via remote-controlled, spider-like hexapod robots. During a typical shift he observes camels, goat herders and the occasional threat from local thieves arriving to siphon oil. But when Gordon witnesses the clandestine meetings between Ayusha and the man she loves, Gordon’s involvement in his work and the people on the other side of his drone’s cameras begins to change. Excellent performances from Joe Cole and Lina El Arabi convey how each character is trapped in their own life, paradoxically limited and liberated by the modern world.

Eye on Juliet offers a story of fundamental human connection and an understated commentary on technology’s influence on our lives, quietly compelling viewers to make their own decisions.
