Mini Indonesian Film Festival: Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts with Garin Nugroho

Our Opening Night for 2018 and the beginning of our Mini Indonesian Film Festival! 

We welcome Guest of Honour Garin Nugroho, arguably Indonesia’s most influential and famous filmmaker and director of Nyai (free screening on Thurs 19 April). CDU's Dr Vannessa Hearman will be hosting the post-film Q&A with Garin.

Billed as a feminist ‘satay western’. When Marlina, a young widow, is attacked and her cattle stolen, she fights back. On a journey of redemption and empowerment she travels across the big sky island of Sumba, Indonesia. Indonesian with English subtitles.

Part of the Mini Indonesian Film Festival, 18-20 April at Deckchair Cinema.

“At once tightly controlled and simmering with righteous fury, it's gorgeously lensed, atmospherically scored and moves inexorably toward a gratifying payoff.”

Maggie Lee Variety

“At once an enjoyable genre ride and a feminist arthouse story, Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts might send some heads rolling but has its own head firmly on its shoulders.”
