In Nikyatu Jusu’s arresting debut feature, recent Senegalese émigré Aisha (Anna Diop) takes a job looking after the daughter of a privileged New York City couple (Michelle Monaghan and Morgan Spector), hoping it will afford her the opportunity to bring over the son she left behind. Increasingly unsettled by rising tensions within the household, Aisha finds herself plagued by a violent, supernatural presence that threatens to destabilize everything she has been painstakingly working towards. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, NANNY explores the psychological horrors of the immigrant experience and unravels the dangerous myth of the American Dream. An Amazon Prime Video Release.
