TONIGHT AT 10

Published by at 01:50 under Filmreakter,Screening Room

MONDO CANE
Italie 1962 / vostf / 108’ / c / De : Gualtiero Jacopetti , Paolo Cavara, Franco Prosperi

The film that single-handedly gave birth to a new genre: Mondo Cane spawned countless pseudo-documentaries about the forbidden parts of our planet, inspiring the ultimate exploitation series Faces of Death two decades later. Mondo Cane is a long way from the horrors that followed and was – believe it or not – even nominated for the Palme d’Or. Today’s audiences are invited to revel in its now-hilarious travelogue format, pointing the camera at everything from insect banquets to Japanese sponge baths or public breastfeeding – a celebration of weirdness!

Tonight, Saturday 31st of March, at 10pm in the Luxembourg Cinematheque!
