About the film

A visceral non-fiction portrait of hope and sacrifice in a time of global economic turmoil, Good Luck was filmed at a state-owned, large-scale underground mine in the war-torn state of Serbia, and an illegal mining collective in the tropical heat of Suriname.

Formed between dark and light, cold and heat, North and South, Good Luck immerses its viewer in the precarious natural and social environments of two distinct labor groups so as to better understand the bonds that men share. Here is the human foundation of capital, revealed.

In Serbian and Saramaccan with English subtitles.

Free admission. Seats in the Auditorium will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
