(18:15 – Hall IV)
night – 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
Movie night – 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days 4 Months, 3
Weeks and 2 Days, winner of the grand prize at the 2007 Cannes Film
Festival, is set in Communist Romania, in the 1980s, with boxy Eastern
Bloc autos, ill-lit streets, and a thriving black market: Kent
cigarettes, Tic-Tacs, abortions. Like various forms of contraception,
abortion was illegal under the regime of Nicolae Ceausescu –
totalitarian measures to boost the country’s population. And so, in
the haunting 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, a pregnant college student
and her dorm-mate arrange for an illegal termination – to be performed
in a drab hotel, by a guy carrying his devices, and his rubber gloves,
in a cheap attache case.
