During the day a clique of female teenagers dedicate themselves to prayer, choreography, singing, and recording videos for social networks. At night, wearing white masks, they hunt down sinful women and punish them by cutting their faces, a mark of eternal damnation. Set against the darkness of night and the glow of neon lights, Anita Rocha da Silveira’s visionary follow-up to Kill Me Please (ND/NF, 2015) reinterprets the myth of Medusa in a conservative, misogynistic, Bolsonarist Brazil. A selection of the Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight in 2021. A Music Box Films release.
