Medusa + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts
A gang of expensively dressed women wear white masks and take a photo
Medusa, dir. Anita Rocha da Silveira, Brazil 2021, 132 min., Portuguese, 15

In writer-director Anita Rocha da Silveira’s genre-bending horror, 21-year-old Mariana (Mari Oliveira) is a member of a repressive patriarchal Christian sect. By day, she and her girlfriends cultivate the image of the perfect woman; at night, they don masks to become a brutal vigilante gang, mercilessly prowling the city for women they deem to be sinners. But when a confrontation goes violently wrong, deadly tensions emerge between Mariana and her pious sisters. An electrifying assault on the senses, Medusa is a nightmarish psychological thriller inspired by the work of David Lynch and Dario Argento.

The screening will be followed by a virtual Q&A with Anita Rocha da Silveira.
