Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


Brazil | 2021 | Anita Rocha da Silveira

MEDUSA  film still

The morally upright and immaculately attired and presented members of an all-female pop band at an evangelical Christian college become a scary gang of masked vigilantes at night, terrorizing sinners and other transgressors in the name of Jesus. This stylish horror film nods to Argento, Carpenter, and Kubrick as it skewers the church, social media, and Brazil’s turn to the right. “Nimbly flows between comedy, mystery and discomforting satire.” –Screen Daily. ”An electrifying work of art.” –Film Threat. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 127 min.

General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.

Face masks, though always recommended, must be worn by filmgoers only when the CDC’s community risk level for Covid in Cuyahoga County is HIGH. Visit for the current community risk level and see the “Face Coverings” section for our detailed mask requirements.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
