Dir. Radu Jude. Romania. 2021, 106 mins. DCP. In Romanian with English subtitles. With Katia Pascariu, Claudia Ieremia, Olimpia Mălai. In Radu Jude’s wildly provocative Golden Bear–winning comedy, a schoolteacher finds her career and reputation under threat after a personal sex tape is leaked on the Internet. Yet this hardly begins to describe this unpredictable, experimental, and entirely entertaining satire on contemporary life, filmed during Bucharest’s lockdown. Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn delivers an incendiary mix of irreverent humor and scathing commentary, and gets to the rotten heart of the modern world’s hypocrisy and prejudices. Romania’s entry for Best International Feature Film at the 2021 Academy Awards leaves no one unscathed. A Magnolia Pictures release.

Recommended for mature audiences; the film contains explicit sexual content.

Please note: This screening was rescheduled from January 7.

Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / discounted for MoMI members ($7–$11).
