Bad Luck Banging (18)


Bad Luck Banging (18)

Thursday 20th January 2022 - Tuesday 25th January 2022

Dir. Radu Jude, 2021, Romania, 106 mins, subtitled. Cast. Katia Pascariu, Claudia Ieremia, Olimpia Malai.

A respected schoolteacher finds her career and reputation under threat when her personal sex tape is leaked on the internet in this bold and uncompromising Berlinale Golden Bear-winning satire. The leaked tape results in demands for her resignation from her prestigious Bucharest school, but she refuses to surrender, facing her detractors head on at an absurdist parents’ tribunal that becomes an exercise in misogyny and racism. A darkly comic vision of modern life as unforgettable as its title and its explicit opening sequence (warning - the sex is real and graphic), this is an incendiary commentary on hypocrisy and prejudice in our societies.

The screening on Thursday 20, 6pm, will be introduced by PAC Director and Film Programmer Anna Navas.

A word of warning: the film begins with a very explicit sex scene. Some viewers might want to keep a mask handy while viewing - to cover your eyes for the opening three minutes.
