Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn
(Radu Jude, 2021, 106 min, Romania, Romanian w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)

In this bold, transgressive social satire, a graphic sex tape of Bucharest schoolteacher Emi (Katia Pascariu) goes viral, leaving her to reckon with a mob of angry parents and defiant students. Determined to fight for her right to privacy, Emi faces her detractors head-on at a parent-teacher tribunal. Playfully divided into three sections—a walking-portrait of pandemic-era Bucharest, a whimsical film essay on the nature and history of obscenity, and a heated, absurdist public trial—Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn is a darkly comic, grandiose cinematic vision of modern life as unforgettable as its title.

 

Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
