Eat Drink Man Woman

To round off our festival we will be serving up a feast for all the senses with a screening of Eat Drink Man Woman accompanied by a celebration of international street food on Saturday June 1, 2013 in Station Square, Railton Road.

There’ll be entertainment plus a wide range of stalls serving up delicious street food from 6pm and the film will start at around 9pm.

A touching, subtle comedy/drama Eat Drink Man Woman (Dir Ang Lee, 1994, Taiwan, Cert PG, 124 mins) explores the inter-generation friction within a traditional Chinese family. Focusing on the lives and relationships of a widowed Taipei chef and his three adult daughters, the film revolves around the sumptuous feasts he prepares for them all and the narrative is sprinkled with scenes of elaborate food preparation.

Eat Drink Man Woman was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and is in Mandarin with English subtitles.

This is an outdoor event so bring something to sit on and whatever you need to stay warm and dry. Please note capacity is limited.

All our events are free to attend but donations to help fund future events are very welcome. Look out for collection buckets at screenings. Thank you for your generosity.

Watch a video of the Herne Hill Station outdoor cinema in September 2012 with pianist Neil Brand creating a live music soundtrack to Buster Keaton's The General.

    Thanks to everyone who came on Saturday...next time we will have a specific point to 'Meetup'...I was fairly busy as if you got there early you would have seen the dancers and a singer perform which was a bit tricky to organise...stay tuned for a charity event in the summer and Peckham & Nunhead FREE Film Festival in early September :)
