Join us for this Dazed x MUBI Cinema Club preview screening of Rotting in the Sun + Q&A with Jordan Firstman
About this event
Next up in the autumn season of Dazed x MUBI Cinema club is another preview screening, this time of Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva’s self-deprecating meta-comedy Rotting in the Sun.
Starring the film’s director Sebastián Silva and Jordan Firstman as themselves, the story is sparked by a meeting at a gay nudist beach, where Sebastián is taking a much-needed break from Mexico City, to escape a loop of depression, doom-scrolling, and sniffing vast quantities of ketamine.
When Firstman arrives in Mexico City to begin work on the project they planned, however, Silva is nowhere to be found, and Rotting in the Sun spirals into an unconventional detective story. Does Sebastián’s housekeeper, Seńora Vera (Catalina Saavedra), know more than she’s letting on?
Tickets will include a free welcome drink and popcorn. To book half-price tickets to all Dazed x MUBI Cinema Club screenings, join Dazed Club!
