Abstract

Film is a product of popular culture, so it becomes a part of human life. Therefore, analyzing movie that is part of a literary work is very interesting. The subject of this research is Silent Hill, a horror film series adapted from the video game. However, this research only takes the data from the first sequel of this movie, because the available data are appropriate with the objectives of this research. Silent Hill 1 tells about a mother who struggles to find a solution in a mysterious town due to irregularities in her adopted daughter who often sleepwalks and calls Silent Hill town. The purpose of this research is to find out how women are depicted in the movie, and why they are shown as the dominant characters. This research uses an objective approach by applying liberal feminism theory, representation theory of Stuart Hall, and supported by film theory. Liberal feminism emphasis on individual autonomy and equality of opportunity. This research focuses on the concept of equality measured by Merle Thornton. While representation theory is used to help in interpreting the portrayal of woman characters that are portrayed dominantly. After analyzing all the data that have been found, beginning from the source of the conflict, the efforts, and the achievements of woman characters that become the focus of this research, they are Rose, Officer Cybil Bennett, and Christabella, the writer concludes that women in this horror movie are described as the figures that can be equal like men. While the portrayal of women as the dominant characters in this movie is an attempt to reverse the stereotypes about women who are weak by showing women with a positive impression and giving new meaning that women can be equal like men.
