In writer-director Anita Rocha de Silveira’s genre-bending horror MEDUSA, 21-year-old Mariana 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.
