BAD BOY BUBBY 30th Anniversary Screening w/ Director & Star Q&A

Umbrella Entertainment are hosting a 30th Anniversary Screening of legendary filmmaker Rolf de Heer‘s BAD BOY BUBBY on April 22 at The Ritz in Sydney with both de Heer and star Nicholas Hope inattendance for a post-screening Q&A.
Confined to a two-room slum for his whole life, Bubby (Hope) knows only of the existence of himself and his mother (Claire Benito), a religious freak who shares the bath, and her bed, with her son. But when Bubby’s long-lost father (an alcoholic priest, played by Ralph Cotterill) returns home, and to his wife’s bed, the jealous Bubby is driven to head out into the world.

Abused and exploited by everyone from feminists to prison inmates, a policeman, animal lovers and the Salvation Army, Bubby, armed only with the few phrases he’s learnt from his mother, has a tough entry into an inhospitable world. But others soon warm to this innocent idiot savant, and Bubby starts to find a place in the poisoned world from which he was confined.

Tickets are on sale now.
