We're happy to bring you five films from Romanian filmmaker Radu Jude to celebrate his winning the Golden Bear for Best Film for Bad Luck Banging, or Looney Porn at last month's Berlin Film Festival. This special program runs from Friday 16th to 30th April 2021 and includes the online debut of his 2020 The Exit of the Trains.
From Friday April 16, viewers can discover an eclectic mix of films from Radu Jude, the acclaimed Romanian auteur filmmaker whose film Bad Luck Banging, or Looney Porn won the Golden Bear for Best Film at last month's Berlinale. As Radu Jude revealed in the special message he recorded for DAFilms viewers to anticipate this event, the focus of his work on pointedly not forgetting right-wing terror waged in the past against innocents still incites outraged reactions in some of the more fascistic corners of the internet. In his e-invitation to DAFilms viewers, Jude gladly quoted from a hateful ode dedicated to him, which he found on the website of right-wing extremists: "You, cinephile, if you care who finances films, wish him to rest in peace and forget what he's done.”
Jude continues: “So, in order to forget what I have done, you should first see these films, and then can you forget them."
