This will be a fixed monthly event every last Sunday of the month, where beginning at 5pm we'll meet for drinks (food also available) in the back bar area, then at 6pm we'll watch an Italian film (in Italian with English subtitles, if preferred) in our private (and beautiful) screening area for 20 people, then we can discuss the film (in italiano) and get to know each other over wine and a relaxed setting.
This month's film is "Lezioni di Volo," one of my all-time favorite Italian films, also featured at the NICE festival a few years ago.
Drama (2007); Director Francesca Archibugi; Cast: Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Andrea Miglio Risi, tom Angel Kharumaty
"A pair of teenage classmates known as "Chicken" and "Curry" for the fact that they are virtually inseparable attempt to cover for the fact that they both failed their high school finals by claiming that "Curry" is in the midst of an identity crisis that can only be solved by returning to his homeland of India with his Jewish best friend. While the ruse works wonderfully on the parents of both students, the impromptu journey of self-discovery takes an unexpected detour when "Curry" locates his sister and becomes captivated by the country he first despised, and "Chicken" falls for an older medic working for Doctors Without Borders after entering a synagogue for the first time in his life."
*We're able to get this discounted price (to watch a film, reserve the private film screening lounge and a glass of wine if we have 20 people), so sign up so we can get this monthly event started and keep it going!!! The RSVP list will be capped at 20 (as the space is very intimate) with an eventual waitlist and the event fee includes the private lounge rental for the group and a glass of wine per person (pre-paid with tax + tip for the first drink). *Additional drinks and appetizers are available if you would like to order your own and we'll have a server for the lounge during the film for orders.
**I have a large collection of Italian films from various genres, but if you have films you would like to offer for the event, please contact me :)
