Screen & Taste: A new monthly cinematic dinner experience
The concept is simple yet tasteful. Together we experience watching a film with impact on society and enjoying a 3-course dinner. Every second Tuesday of the month @droog.
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 senses will be touched. The films are selected by film curator Sofia Mourato. When possible, the filmmaker will be present for a Q&A, moderated by Sofia.
“Excellent concept, the low barriers connect people. Love the living room vibes!”
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.
About the film: Acasa, my Home
directed by Radu Ciorniciuc, RO FI DE, 2020, 55 minutes (English subtitles)
Human Interest | Society
For 20 years, nine children and their parents lived in the wilderness of the Bucharest Delta, in perfect harmony with nature, until they are chased out and forced to adapt to the big city. With an empathetic and cinematic eye, filmmaker Radu Ciorniciuc offers a compelling tale of an impoverished family living on the fringes of society in Romania, fighting for acceptance and their own version of freedom.
“Heart-breaking and relevant”– Cineuropa
“An emotional journey” – Roger Ebert
“Lyrical and provocative” – The Hollywood Reporter
