In the Mood for Love

Thursday, June 20

In the Mood for Love
(1999, dir. Wong Kar-wai)

Renowned actors Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung shine as two neighbors who find each other in their shared loneliness in 1960s’ Hong Kong in this breathtaking, timeless film, often cited as one of the best films of all time. We needn’t say more, right?

Subtitles: English

American Fiction

American Fiction
(2023, dir. Cord Jefferson)

Frustrated that his work is not being published because it is “not black enough,” a distinguished author (played by Jeffrey Wright) writes a satire of the book that publishers are looking for under a pseudonym. This backfires, when the book is taken completely seriously and becomes a bestseller. Oscar-winning, topical and also just very funny!

Subtitles: Dutch


Saturday, June 22

(2023, dir. Emma Seligman)

The life of a lesbian loser is not a bed of roses. High school students PJ and Josie know all about this, struggling to get the attention of the school’s cutest girls. And how one goes about fixing this situation? By starting a ‘fight club’, of course! Rising stars Ayo Edebiri (The Bear) and Rachel Sennott (Shiva Baby) excel in this absurd, hilarious comedy, which you really must experience with an audience (and where better than at the Dutch premiere on the Pieterskerkplein!).

Subtitles: None
