Marlina The Murderer in Four Acts

Wednesday 18th April, 2018

The Electric Cinema Screen 2 | 20:00 - 21:40

A new entry in the feminist western subgenre, Indonesian director Mouly Surya pulls no punches with her impressive female-driven journey of vengeance.

Marlina, a young widow, kills several men when she is attacked at her home on an isolated island and robbed for her cattle. Seeking justice, empowerment and redemption, she takes to the road. But the road is long when the ghosts of the past are riding along with you. Simmering with righteous fury, Surya’s film starkly tackles Indonesia’s gender conditions, complex regional culture and barren beauty.

Please note this performance is not wheelchair accessible. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Dir: Mouly Surya
Indonesia 2017, 93 mins
