Jacky in the Kingdom of Women
Saturday April 26,
10:20 pm

"Imagine a world where women call the shots, a world where women fight the wars, run the government, have the illustrious careers, and hold all the important positions of power. Now imagine being a man in that world. That man is 20 year old Jacky, and that fabled world is the Republic of Bubunne, a totalitarian matriarchy where men, wearing chadors and bejeweled dog collars, are relegated to lives of domestic servitude. Like all members of Bubunne’s downtrodden sex, Jacky dreams of marrying up. All the way up. He’s got his sights set on the Colonel, daughter of the supreme leader. But if he is ever going to make beautiful daughters with her, he first has to finagle his way into the Presidential Ball. With a memorable cameo by The Artist filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius playing a prostitute/rebel commander, this brilliant, incisive political satire unspools like a fairytale gone cruelly and hilariously berserk."
