Working Class Goes To Hell Trailer

“There’s no turning back now.” Something new from Serbia! TIFF has unveiled a festival promo trailer for a Serbian horror dark comedy called Working Class Goes To Hell, the second feature film by director Mladen Djordjevic. Sounds like something wacky and funny and weird and crazy. Here is the quick TIFF intro: “A small-town labor union turns to the dark arts for empowerment against the corrupt forces in their community in Mladen Đorđević’s timely and disturbing socio-horror satire.” Essentially it’s about a group of workers from a factory that has closed who decide to reach out to the supernatural in a struggle for personal dignity. They, of course, unleash mostly just madness. “One is reminded that sometimes the only salvation for the working class, besides solidarity, is a sharp sense of humor.” The cast features Tamara Krcunovic, Leon Lucev, Ivan Djordjevic, Mirsad Tuka, Szilvia Krizsan, Lidija Kordic, and Momo Picuric. It’s playing in Midnight Madness at the Toronto Film Festival, with more fests to follow after. Check out the teaser below.

Synopsis via TIFF: “Five years after a factory fire claimed the lives of several workers and, with them, the primary livelihood of a rural Balkan town, the plant’s union is met with a debilitating blow in their fight for reparations. Long suspected of causing the fire in order to privatize their property, the owners have succeeded in evading legal consequence and the workers are cast as ungrateful nuisances, obstinate in the face of capitalistic progress. Stoic labour leader Ceca (Tamara Krcunovic) refuses to give up hope, but her position grows tenuous when the collective begins to develop a fascination with the pagan practices of its newest member, Mija (Leon Lucev). After Mija leads the union in a ritual that belies a satanic undertone, very strange occurrences begin to be reported around town, including the enigmatic manifestation of a decrepit man, seen stalking the most corrupt citizens.Working Class Goes To Hell, originally known as Radnicka Klasa ide u Pakao in Serbian, is written and directed by Serbian filmmaker Mladen Djordjevic, his second feature film after Glad previously, plus many other shorts. This will be premiering at the 2023 Toronto Film Festival in the Midnight Madness section. No release dates are set yet – stay tuned. Interested?
