Yuni

  Kamila Andini

  Indonesia, Singapore, France     95 minutes

Synopsis

Yuni (Arawinda Kirana) is a bright, audacious teenager who loves singing and practicing martial arts, is passionate about the color purple, and has ambitions of attending university. But her plans are upended when, on the eve of her graduation, several suitors approach her family with marriage proposals. Trapped between traditional familial obligations and her desire to be independent, Yuni musters the courage to blaze her own path. But will it be enough? Eliciting a magnetic lead performance from star Kirana, Indonesian filmmaker Kamila Andini deftly creates an immersive, unsettled world, where anything seems possible but nothing is certain.
