In Cinemas NOVEMBER 25

SYNOPSIS:

A video goes viral. It shows a man and a woman having sex while wearing masks. The woman is, nevertheless, identified. Too bad she is a teacher and supposed to be a role model. And this, moreover, in a (post-socialist but ultimately any) society that is about to get lost in a social network discourse of would-be healing squeaky-clean attitudes, pseudo-political knowing-it-all, sanctimonious chauvinism and grotesque conspiracy theories. Everyone has an opinion. The debate turns into a tribunal – about consensual sex, pornography and more.

Always up for innovative cinematic experiments, Radu Jude has crafted from this constellation an intelligent, satirical triptych: with its nonchalantly precise camerawork and manic humour found in the stress of everyday life on Bucharest’s streets, the first part shows us what contemporary cinema at the documentary-fiction interface can look like. The second part is an offbeat series of laconic, static images intended as an encyclopaedia of the symbols of our time. The film’s grand – albeit open-ended – finale is a discussion held at the school in which judgement is passed on our heroine’s right to exist.

Season running 19 November – 4 December

SYNOPSIS:

Ad Astra’s final production for 2022 is the chilling Death and the Maiden, written by Ariel Dorfman and directed by Jacqueline Kerr. Set in Latin America, the story centres around 3 main characters: Paulina Salas, played by Sandra Harman, a woman whose horrific kidnapping, torture and rape at the hands of government officials comes back to haunt all three characters. Her husband Gerado Escobar, a lawyer who has just been appointed to a commission charged with investigating murders carried out by the previous dictator’s regime, is played by Gary Farmer-Trickett. And Tom Coyle plays Dr Roberto Miranda, an enigmatic and mysterious man whom Paulina believes to be her torturer, though his guilt is somewhat
ambiguous.

This is not a play for the faint of heart. Exploring themes such as trauma, memory, justice and injustice, freedom, female empowerment and forgiveness, we are taken on a tense journey which will hold a mirror to us all, as we grapple with some of these difficult themes.
