SF Indie Fest Closing Night: JACKY IN THE KINGDOM OF WOMEN
February 15, 2015 - February 19, 2015

jacky in the kingdom 2In the People’s Democratic Republic of Bubunne, it’s the women who are in power, who give the orders and who fight the wars, while the men wear veils and look after the home. One of these men, Jacky, has the same fantasy as all the bachelors in the land – to marry the Colonelle, daughter of the Supreme Leader, and have lots of daughters with her. Now if only he can finangle his way into the Presidential Ball… Part Cinderella, part Barbarella, this brilliant, incisive political satire unspools like a fairytale gone cruelly and hilariously berserk. (Seattle International Film Festival) – KJ
