Screening at both SXSW and Overlook, M.F.A. is bringing the latest in rape revenge to the indie festival circuit. Starring Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint) and featuring the film’s writer/producer Leah McKendrick, the film also features women in roles behind the camera. Director Natalia Leite and composer Sonya Belousova show that the subgenre doesn’t need to be dominated by men.
