Welcome to our seventh and final Vinema of our first season - a series of informal, eclectic evenings for discovering wines and film from those countries of the world that produce the best of both.
There will be six distinctive wines available at the bar by the glass or bottle to enjoy and take to your seat in the Salon to watch the film.
The bar will also be open afterwards for wine and film confabulation.
With our next evening of the series - we venture to Lebanon with Nadine Labaki’s heart rending but hopeful film, Capernaum.
Zain (Zain Al Rafeea) is a young boy living with his family in an impoverished Beirut neighbourhood. Wise and street-smart beyond his years, Zain's resentment towards his parents builds and, following a series of tragic events, he is compelled to sue them for bringing children into such a world.
Featuring a host of astounding performances, Capernaum marks the sensational debut of young actor Al Rafeea, with writer-director Nadine Labaki crafting an emotionally powerful and thought-provoking tale of hope.
“Without order nothing can exist - without chaos nothing can evolve. Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” - Oscar Wilde
