Film Synopsis: Kuongoza supplants an ancient Greek myth into an urban setting, subverting it to address poignant issues plaguing our patriarchal society. Punished and tormented for her beauty in the classic telling, the tragic character of Medusa is transformed instead into a heroic figure in this genre-bending, time-warping film about desire, betrayal, and female empowerment.
