For this fourth movie night hosted by the Concordia Graduate Film Studies Student Association, Nikola will be presenting Parade, a Serbian film by director Srdjan Dragojevic. The screening will take place at 6pm, this Thursday March 13, in the MIRC. We ask that you please show up a bit early, as the film will start at 6pm sharp. As always, the screening will be followed by pizza in the Grad Lounge. Won’t you join us?
“Turning transgression into a comedic principle, this turbulent farce that toys with clichés and stereotypes turned out to be an unexpected hit in Serbia and other ex-Yugoslavian countries. In PARADA a life-saving operation on a gangster’s pitbull terrier brings together two very different worlds: old school machismo meets gay obsession for interior design, homophobia meets overblown gender display as a number of former foes – Serbs, Bosnian Muslims, Kosovo-Albanians and Croatian war veterans – find themselves obliged to form a tenuous bond with a bunch of gay activists. This motley crew are sent on an impossible and probably suicidal mission to protect a fresh attempt to hold a Gay Pride parade from renewed and certain onslaught from nationalists and neo-Nazi organisations and make the event a success.”
