The Cineskinny Film Club with MUBI

A still from Yannick. A man in a white fleece top stands up in a theatre.

The Cineskinny Film Club continues with the new film by French surrealist Quentin Dupieux.

Yannick follows the audience member of the title, who stands up in the middle of a terrible play and expresses his displeasure with the production. Naturally, he takes the actors hostage and makes them perform his new and improved version of the play. The result is a delicious satire exploring the nature of art and what we want from it as audience members, plus a deeply satisfying piece of wish fulfilment for anyone who’s had to sit through a honking piece of theatre.

The latest film from the incredibly prolific Dupieux – his fifth of the decade so far – is another quick-fire slice of absurdism from the man who brought us Deerskin (a man is possessed by a haunted leather jacket), Mandibles (two pals find a giant fly in their car, try to train it), and Smoking Causes Coughing (anti-tobacco vigilantes go for a weekend away, chaos ensues).

We're chuffed to team up with MUBI once again, and will be screeningYannick for free as part of The CineSkinny Film Club.
