Yuni

Kamila ANDINI Indonesia, Singapore, France, Australia 95 Min NC16 Singapore Premiere

A teenage girl juggles gendered societal expectations and personal desires in this lyrical coming-of-age story.

Set in an Indonesian town, the film follows Yuni—a bright female high-schooler with an obsession for everything purple. At the threshold of adulthood, she starts receiving marriage proposals, which is customary of her community. But Yuni’s teenage preoccupations, from college aspirations to romantic rendezvous, render marriage at this age ill-fitting. As proposals come one after another and societal expectations multiply, her fate is left to onerous decisions that will irreversibly shape her future.
