Stone Turtle, dir. Woo Ming Jin, Malaysia, Indonesia 2022, Malay with English subtitles. 91 min.

"I'd rather be alive on an island of ghosts than be a ghost in the land of living"

Zahara, a refugee from Indonesia, lives on a small remote island in Malaysia, where she makes a living selling turtle eggs. One day, Samad, claiming to be a university researcher, visits the island and convinces Zahara to help him navigate. But as the day goes on, Zahara and Samad become entangled in a dangerous and time-travelling dance of duplicity and deception.

A spellbinding and enigmatic cross between feminist revenge thriller, folk horror, and animation that offers a dazzlingly new take on political themes.

Screening as a part of London Migration Film Festival.
London Migration Film Festival is an annual film festival that has been running since 2016. The aim of the festival is to challenge the narrow rhetoric on migration that often sees migration, and people on the move, framed in reductive and dehumanising terms. The festival is taking place from 22-29 November 2023.
