Description

In this dystopian/mythological satire, a gang of young Brazilian women don creepy masks and beat women they deem as being too promiscuous. But when convert, Mariana, begins to question her life, all hell breaks loose, in writer-director Anita Rocha da Silveira stunningly stylized film.

Mariana is a singer who performs with a choir for a radical, misogynist Christian sect during the day… but at night, she and her devoted sisters don white masks and carry out vicious attacks on women the vigilantes deem “promiscuous.” But in the course of their work, she starts to seek answers to the questions her soul conjures up each and every day. Evoking Dario Argento and David Lynch, but very much its own film, Medusa is a terrifying look at very real present day. “[W]ild, glamorous, and marked with a dark, slick fury.” –Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Alliance of Women Film Journalists
