IFC Midnight announced today that Randall Okita’s SEE FOR ME, a home invasion chiller that pits a blind house-sitter against three experienced thieves, will be released in select theaters, on Digital Platforms, and Video On Demand on January 7, 2022.
Directed by artist and filmmaker Randall Okita, SEE FOR ME is a Wildling Pictures Production. Written by Adam Yorke and Tommy Gushue, produced by Matt Code and Kristy Neville, and David Di Brina is the executive producer. The film is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada and Ontario Creates. The film stars visually impaired actor Skyler Davenport as blind house-sitter Sophie, alongside Kim Coates, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Pascal Langdale, Joe Pingue, George Tchortov, Laura Vandervoort, and Emily Piggford.
When blind former skier Sophie accepts a last-minute house-sitting job in a secluded mansion, she awakes in the middle of the night to find the house under invasion by a group of thieves seeking a hidden safe. Her only means of defense: a new app called “See For Me”, which matches her with a volunteer across the country who uses Sophie’s cell phone to see on her behalf. Stubbornly independent, Sophie is reluctant to accept help until she is connected to Kelly, an army veteran who spends her days playing first person shooter games. As the game of cat-and-mouse with the intruders escalates, Sophie is forced to learn that if she’s going to survive the night, she’ll need to take all the help she can get.
The sophomore feature from Randall Okita, who previously directed The Lockpicker and acclaimed VR experience The Book of Distance, SEE FOR ME made its World Premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival, where critics took notice of Okita’s confident direction and intricate staging. In our review, DarkSkyLady said that SEE FOR ME is “not only a lively watch, but it has also added twists beyond the standard fare of the genre of a home invasion.”
