An Evening of Short Films and Conversation

Special Event with Radu Jude in attendance

Radu Jude’s Bad Luck Banging or Looney Porn, a co-production with Luxembourg, won the Berlinale Golden Bear in 2021. The Romanian director will return to the Grand Duchy in February for a special evening at the Cinémathèque. He’ll present several shorts and will talk about his cinephilia in a post-screening conversation inspired by the films and Tristan Tzara’s maxim, “I like an old work for its novelty.”

The shorts, most of them shown on vintage 16mm prints, involve some of cinema’s most famous names, including Méliès, Buñuel, Vigo, well-known twosome Stan and Ollie and the more unexpected pairing of documentarians Joris Ivens and Chris Marker.
