The Art of Self-Defense

Saturday 9 November

14:00 - 15:44 Trianon 3

After being attacked at random, Casey (Jesse Eisenberg) enlists in a karate class to learn how to defend himself. He soon finds out that his sensei can teach him a lot more than just karate. Maybe even a little too much… This dark comedy echoes the work of LIFF Favourite Yorgos Lanthimos. Besides Eisenberg, there are fun roles for Imogen Poots and David Zellner, who was our guest last year with his film Damsel.

When something’s so bad you know you’re not supposed to enjoy it, but God, it feels good...! Expect nothing but awful hits, terrible videos and outfits that could pass as “controversial”.
