“Look Into My Eyes” follows a group of New York City psychics who conduct deeply intimate readings for their clients, revealing a kaleidoscope of loneliness, connection and healing. Wilson sets her gaze on the private lives of seven unconventional healers and creative types searching for solace and struggling to make dreams come true in a city of eight million people.

The deal for international sales rights was brokered between Dogwoof’s chief content officer, Oli Harbottle, and Jason Ishikawa, Cinetic Media’s co-head of sales.

Harbottle said the film was “full of tenderness and compassion as it explores the human need for connection.” He added: “The level of intimate access Lana displays is a testament to her filmmaking prowess.”

Wilson added: “This film is not only an exploration of the phenomenon of psychic readings — it’s an invitation to think about the role of art and performance in our lives.”

“Look Into My Eyes” is edited by Hannah Buck, and the director of photography is Stephen Maing.

The film is produced by Kyle Martin, and the executive producers are Emily Osborne, Nicole Stott, Shizuka Asakawa, Julie Parker, Benello Ruth, Ann Harnisch and Regina K. Scully.
