THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD d. Radu Jude, 2009 at ICA (18 NOV 13:45) / Part of IN FOCUS: RADU JUDE.

  • “One of the landmark works in the Romanian film renaissance, Radu Jude’s debut feature is a perfectly paced and darkly funny satire on contemporary life. THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD tackles the vacuity of advertising, the modern obsession with celebrity and the power of parental greed with brilliant economy, aided by a note-perfect cast.”

BECOMING COUSTEAU d. Liz Garbus, 2021.

KEYBOARD FANTASIES d. Posy Dixon, 2019.

YOU WILL DIE AT TWENTY d. Amjad Abu Alala, 2019.
