Do Not Expect Too Much
Hull Independent Cinema present

Do Not Expect Too Much From the End of the World (18)

Director: Radu Jude | 2023

Overworked and underpaid production assistant Angela is assigned to film a workplace safety video for a multinational corporation in Bucharest. Hurtling from place to place in her lived-in and beaten-up car-cum-mobile office, she encounters all the vulgar indignities of modern life, and punctuates her day by live streaming crude rants from her satirical alt-right alter ego Bobiță. But when one of the company’s employees due to be filmed for the video makes a statement that ignites a scandal, Angela has to re-invent the story.
