Jacky in the Kingdom of Women
Saturday April 26,
"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."
