About the event

Friday, July 23rd: Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts (2017, 90 mins).   

In the deserted hills of an Indonesian island, Marlina (Marsha Timothy), a young widow, is attacked and robbed of all her livestock by a gang of seven bandits. She then defends herself, setting out on a journey to find justice, empowerment, retribution and redemption. But the road is long, especially when she begins to be haunted by ghosts. A western with stunning cinematography and set to a Morricone-inspired score, this unique tale of feminist solidarity and revenge takes no prisoners.
