ESTOMAGO: A GASTRONOMIC STORY (2007)
DIRECTED BY MARCOS JORGE
LIVE MUSIC BY TRIO AGOGO
ENTRY IS FREE
We are proud to share with you that our project to promote Brazilian culture through films and music has been receiving a lot of support and this next edition will bring a lot of novelties.
Firstly, we are moving it to SHED 4, at the Docklands, where Open Channel is. This is an amazing space with a big screen and there will be more room for everyone to sit comfortably.
Doors will be open from 5:30 PM and we will start with live music at 6:30 PM. For those of you who haven’t seen Trio Agogo yet, this is your chance to let this amazing trio of Aussie guys who play “Choro” transport you back to Brazil.
Screening will start at 7:30 PM and we will be featuring “Estômago – A gastronomy story” by Marcos Jorge (2007). This is the story of the rise and fall of Raimundo Nonato, a cook with very special talents who migrates to the big city without a penny in his pocket. He cooks and learns how to get by in a society divided in two between those who eat and those who get eaten. The film deals with two universal themes: food and power. But more specifically, food as a means of acquiring power. It can be defined as “grown-up fable of power, sex and cooking.”
We will have a discussion following the movie for those interested in debating and asking questions about the film and play Brazilian music for those more interested in dancing and partying.
The entry is free again and we will have a donation box next to the table with fliers and magazines. We will be also selling some posters of the event for those keen to supporting our initiative and help us keep Samba Cine Club happening.
Finally, as it is a gastronomy event, we will have some delicious “Brazilian tapas” for sale.
For those who haven’t been to SHED 4 at the Docklands please check the map on http://www.shed4.com.au as it may be difficult to find us.
There is parking around the Shed and easy access by public transport (trams 30, 70, 86 and 48 stop in front of Etihad Stadium and walk through to the left side of the wharf. By train, get off Southern Cross and walk over Bourke Street Pedestrian Bridge via Etihad Stadium). There will be a big footy game on at Etihad stadium that night (Western Bulldogs and St Kilda!) so you might want to consider public transport option.
Entry is 18+, film has subtitles and discussion is in English.
Hope to see you there and please tell your friends that could be interested!
