Screen & Taste IV: Population Boom
The concept is simple yet tasteful. Together we experience watching a film with impact on society and enjoying a 3-course dinner. Take a seat and enjoy.
The films will be curated to reflect on what makes cities alive, showcasing stories of climate crises, human connection and resilience, urban development, and design innovation. Together we have an interactive evening where our tasting, hearing and viewing senses will be touched. The films are selected by film curator Sofia Mourato.
All recipes are original, created by chef Marcus Shockley and inspired by the culture and environment portrayed in the film.
The menu enhances the experience of watching a film together and tasting delicious food.
€49,50 per ticket. This includes a movie and a 3-course dinner. Drinks can be purchased separately at the bar.
“Excellent concept, the low barriers connect people. Love the living room vibes!”

There are currently about 7 billion people in the world and the number continues to rise. Are there too many people on planet Earth? Werner Boote takes on the overpopulation myth in a light-hearted global investigation. A cinematic journey with the masses between myth, facts and politics.
