Saturday, Mar 19, 2022 at 7:30 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

With lead actor Ladya Cheryl in person

Dir. Edwin. Indonesia. 2021, 114 mins. DCP. In Indonesian with English subtitles. With Marthino Lio, Ladya Cheryl. Indonesian auteur Edwin’s exhilarating whatsit blends grindhouse exploitation with meet-cute romance and magical realism. Ajo Kawir, a fighter whose fearlessness is matched only by shame over his enduring impotence, falls for (and gets pummeled by) a female fighter named Iteung, sending him on a journey in which he may finally rise to the occasion. A MoMI Disreputable Cinema presentation. East Coast premiere

Preceded by:
Semiotic Plastic
Dir. Radu Jude. Romania. 2021, 22 mins. No dialogue. DCP. Merging the kitschy with the uncanny, Romanian provocateur Radu Jude’s follow-up to Berlin winner Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn dramatizes the cycle of human life, and the history of western civilization, from birth to death, rise and fall, via tableaus of mismatched, inanimate toys. New York premiere
