Tomorrow I'll Wake Up and Scald Myself with Tea
(Zítra vstanu a opařím se čajem)

A film by Jindřich Polák
Czechoslovakia, 1977

 

 

From Jindřich Polák, director of the sci-fi classic Ikarie XB-1, comes another foray into science-fiction with this lesser known but equally impressive feature. But unlike the serious ‘hard’ sci-fi approach of Ikarie, this film is a deliciously demented time-travel romp that manages to be both hilariously silly and impressively ingenious at the same time.

 

In the near-future, time travel has become a possibility, and a group of neo-Nazi's hijack a time-ship in order to go back to 1944 to deliver a hydrogen bomb to Hitler and thus secure victory in WWII…

 

Polák expertly balances the film's disparate elements to produce a work of immense pleasure which is unpredictable, irreverent, intelligent and wildly funny - and which emerges one of the great undiscovered sci-fi movies of the 1970s.

Liberté
A film by Albert Serra
France 2019

 

 

France 1774. Expelled from the puritanical court of Louis XVI, a group of aristocratic libertines pursue a philosophy of enlightenment and the rejection of moral boundaries and authorities. At a time when hypocrisy and false virtue reign, they secure a private place to indulge their quest for pleasure... a place whose boundaries are dictated only by unfulfilled desires.

 

Albert Serra’s explicit and sumptuous travail through a libidinous twilight world is one of the most radical and subversive works of recent times.



The Girl from Hunan Still


“Serra's surreal pornographic pileup is a radical statement on sexual freedoms... an outrageous satire of aristocracy that reworks antiquated imagery into something altogether nastier and more immediate. IndieWire

 

“An uncompromising howl in the wind against the notions of good taste... This is both Serra’s most uncompromising film and his most enjoyable.” The Film Stage
