Marlina, omicida in quattro atti

Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

by Mouly Surya

In the deserted hills of an Indonesian island, Marlina, a young widow, is attacked and robbed for her cattle. To defend herself, she kills several men of the gang. Seeking justice, she goes on a journey for empowerment and redemption. But the road is long especially when the ghost of her headless victim begins to haunt her.

Mouly Surya pioneers a new genre, creating a surprising feminist western carried in the vast landscapes of rural Indonesia and dominated by the strong figure of the protagonist, capable of rebellion against the brutality of male universe.
