FRA/ITA | 1973 | dir. Marco Ferreri, with Marcello Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli, Philippe Noiret, Ugo Tognazzi, Andréa Ferréol | restored film on DCP

Four world-weary middle-aged men (a pilot, a chef, a judge and a TV personality) decide to gorge themselves to death in one final orgiastic weekend of gluttony, wanton sex, and general hedonism. (Re) discover Ferreri’s scandalous blacklycomic satire of modern consumer society, with its quest for constant, unlimited and guilt-free pleasure.

This screening is part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival and echoes the Food: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the V&A.

All tickets £5.
