Director Matthew Rankin’s award-winning debut feature is a faux biopic that charts the roller coaster ascent of famed Canadian Prime Minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King, to power. Divided into several chapters, we follow the not-so-innocent King as he navigates through an absurd political hellscape, all the while trying to stave off his unsavoury urges in a bid to get to the top. Stylistically soaked in a retro aesthetic, The Twentieth Century  is a colourised acid trip that plunges the viewer into an entirely different universe that stands out as some of the most hilarious and visually inventive filmmaking you will have ever seen. 

Content Warnings: Mild physical violence | Blood / gore | Strong sexual references
