Mar 11, 2012 2:00pm talk/event
Disgrace
Directed by Steve Jacobs
2008
Running time: 119 minutes
Auditorium, White Cube Bermondsey.
Directed by Steve Jacobs and starring John Malkovich, Disgrace (2008) is based on the controversial novel from 1999 by Nobel prize-winning author J.M. Coetzee – a shocking and violent tale set in an unresolved, post-apartheid South Africa. David Lurie, a disillusioned white professor of literature, is sacked from his job in Cape Town after an affair with a female student. At a loose end, Lurie decides to join his estranged daughter who lives on a small-holding in the beautiful landscape of the Eastern Cape. But after an afternoon of brutal violence, where Lucy is gang raped and Lurie burnt by three black men their relationship becomes ever more strained. To Lurie’s horror, Lucy decides to keep the child that she conceives as a result of the rape and to stay on her farm despite the danger. Disgrace chronicles the personal downfall of Lurie but, at the same time, the historic impasse of blacks and whites in South Africa after centuries of racial oppression.
Reservation is not necessary, but places are limited. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
