About this Event

Join us on Saturday for a screening of the Palm d’Or prize winner “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”. This critically acclaimed Romanian art film has made it to the lists of top films of the 21st century of many renowned critics.

Synopsis: “Romania, 1987, the brutal Ceausescu communist regime is in place; birth control is illegal and abortion is a crime punishable by death. Gabita (Laura Vasliu) is almost five months into an unwanted pregnancy and in meek desperation turns to her friend and roommate, Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) for help in organizing an illegal termination. Unfortunate circumstances force the two women to use an unwanted male abortionist, Bebe (Vlad Ivanov). The bleakness of the storyline expresses a dark socio-political critique in the twilight years of a repressive dictatorship.”

Runtime: 1h 53m

Our screenings are usually free, but this time we’re raising funds for the American organisation WRRAP:

“Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Project (WRRAP) is the largest national, independent, nonprofit abortion fund. We provide urgently-needed financial assistance nationwide to individuals seeking abortion services or emergency contraception.”

We recommend a minimum payment of £3, and you are welcome to add as much as you want to that amount. All proceeds go to the organisation.
