*Please note this film contains flashing images/strobing. It also contains strong real sex, nudity, sexually abusive behaviour, and very strong language.

School teacher Emi finds her job threatened when a sex tape she made with her husband winds up on the internet. She has one chance to save her career: a parent-teacher meeting where she’s forced to defend herself in a court-like setting. However, the ‘scandalised’ parents and staff find their own hypocrisies and misdeeds under scrutiny as the meeting goes completely off the rails…

The latest film from Radu Jude (The Happiest Girl In The World) is an outrageous, provocative, very funny social satire split into three parts - a walk through Bucharest; a playful ‘film essay’ about society’s contradictory moral compass; and the climactic parent-teacher meeting. This wild, inventive film took home the Golden Bear Berlin Film Festival 2021.

Organiser

Sligo Film Society is not for profit and run entirely by volunteers. We programme two seasons of cultural cinema a year from The Model, Sligo and are members of Access Cinema.

Sligo Film Society was first established in April 1944 when a branch of the Irish Film Society was set up at The Gaiety Cinema. The aim was to bring a monthly programme of outstanding films of every nationality, not normally screened in mainstream cinema. A committee of nine was elected with R.H.Campbell-Perry as Chairman and Anthony (Tony) P. Toher as Secretary.

However, the idea to bring the best of world cinema to Sligo is said to have been born in the 1930s when the late Tony Toher’s father, Thomas P. Toher, decided to screen films in a shed in the back of Tohers Chemist, formerly located on Stephen Street.

The society began by screening its programme in the Gaiety cinema and went on to showcase films in venues all over Sligo including the Hawk’s Well Theatre, the Glasshouse Hotel, the Yeats Memorial Building, IT Sligo and the Teacher’s Centre (now the ETB). 

While the film programme was a form of entertainment for local people, the ambition of the committee was to also encourage an appreciation of the art of cinema.

This was fulfilled with the establishment of the RTC (IT Sligo) in 1970, when a group of film enthusiasts emerged and took over the running of SFS. Many of these members still serve on the committee today and are joined by several new members.

Today, Sligo Film Society operates a weekly film night over two seasons from September to December and January to April, usually (but not always) showing 14 titles per season.
