Mies Julie

Farber’s fierce adaptation of Strindberg’s Miss Julie resets the classic play to a farmhouse in the Karoo of South Africa on the evening of the annual Freedom Day celebration. When the white Afrikaans landowner’s daughter, Julie, falls for her father’s charismatic Xhosa farm laborer, John, their erotic evening together erupts into a brutal battle fueled by gender, race, power, and ancestral domain.

By Yaël Farber
Adapted from the play Miss Julie by August Strindberg
Directed by Shariffa Ali
