Christmas Food Film Club: The Baker!

Dear bubblers of Pollenzo,

Food Film Club is back before Christmas. We will be watching a Movie on Monday evening, 15th of December!

By an overwhelming majority the chosen movie has been THE BAKER. Thank you very much for those who voted!

As last time we will ask you to take off your shoes, so bring some comfy socks or slippers! Cushions are also welcomed for your own comfort.

Food and drinks will be happily received for doing a small aperitivo before the screening. As always, we will prepare something and give you popcorn and wine for free 😉 Let’s pre-celebrate the arrival of the big red man!

Stay hungry and prepare yourself for Christmas,
The Merry Food Film Club team.

Cari “bubblers” di Pollenzo,

Il Food Film Club è tornato prima di Natale!! Vedremo un film Lunedì sera, il 15 di Dicembre.

Il film scelto con una grande maggioranza di voti è THE BAKER! Ringraziamo vivamente tutti coloro che hanno partecipato alla votazione!

Come l’ultima volta vi chiederemo gentilmente di lasciare le vostre scarpe all’ingresso, per cui munitevi di pantofole! I cuscini sono benvenuti, non esitate a portarli per il vostro comfort personale.

Popcorn e vino saranno ad aspettarvi all’ingresso, ma saremmo molto lieti se riusciste a portare qualcosa anche voi per avere un bel aperitivo natalizio prima della proiezione.

“Stay hungry” e preparatevi per il Natale,
The Merry Food Film Club team

Temple Grandin Film Tonight!

Temple Grandin is a 2010 biopic directed by Mick Jackson and starring Claire Danes as Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who revolutionized practices for the humane handling of livestock on cattle ranches and slaughterhouses.

And that is all we are going to tell you about this magnificent movie. This is not a movie about cooking, not one about chefs, its much more than that. It’s about what comes first. It is about the other side of this coin called gastronomy. It depicts the hidden story behind every bite we take and every “delicious” expression you exclaim. Not a documentary, not a fictional testimony, but a real life story made into a film.

If your curiosity about this incredible woman is still not enough to drag you over the gastronomic society this thursday at 20.30, just let us tell you that you will not only have free popcorn and wine as always, but you will enjoy the first open-air food film club of this year. As summer decided to come a little late this year, we made our minds to kick winter the hell out of this university.

Food Film Club Presents:

Did anyone else notice a little frost on the grass this morning? Yup, it’s that time of year again. A winter chill is creeping in and the nights are getting longer. It’s time to cuddle up with friends, blankets, a glass of something warming, and a darn good movie.

Conveniently enough…

The next Food Film Club is on Thursday November 15th at 19.30!!

Our movie: Io Sono L’Amore (I Am Love)

I am Love

Much like the star of the movie, Tilda Swinton, this movie is unsettlingly beautiful. Set between Milan and somewhere in the Italian countryside, the movie follows our complex heroine’s transition from the gilded cage of upper-class Italian family life, to a more expressive existence with her chef-lover. Food is the medium bringing her out of her shell. But this is no romantic portrayal of Italian cuisine. Just like the people, sex, soundtrack and relationships in this movie, food is alternately challenging, raw, graphic and beautiful. This is a must see.

Come join us! Bring a cushion and get cozy…

Thursday November 15th at 19.30, Via Vittorio Emanuale 207 (Bianca Bonetti’s apartment)

As always, FFC is FREE & OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS

Free wine and popcorn. Feel free to bring your own drinks and food, too.

Please bring a cushion to sit on!!

Avete notato anche voi quel velo di brina sull’erba stamattina? Già, è di nuovo quel periodo dell’anno. Il gelo invernale si sta insinuando tra noi e le sere si stanno allungando. E’ tempo di rannicchiarsi con amici, coperte, un bicchiere che ti scaldi dentro, e un gran bel film.

Guarda caso…

Il prossimo Food Film Club sarà Giovedì 15 Novembre alle 19.30!!

Il nostro film: Io Sono L’Amore (I Am Love)

Tanto quanto la protagonista, Tilda Swinton, questo film è di una bellezza sconvilgente. Ambientato tra Milano e qualche posto indefinito della campagna italiana, il film segue la transizione della nostra eroina dalla prigione dorata della vita italiana alto-borghese ad un’esistenza più significativa con il suo chef-amante. Il cibo è ciò che la fa uscire dal suo guscio. Ma questo non sarà un romantico ritratto della cucina italiana. Così come le persone, il sesso, la colonna sonora e le relazioni in questo film, il cibo è impegnativo, provocatorio, crudo, grafico e spettacolare. E’ un film da vedere!

Unitevi a noi!! Portate un cuscino e mettetevi comodi..

Gioved’ 15 Novembre alle 19.30, Via Vittorio Emanuale 207 (appartamento di Bianca Bonetti)

Come sempre, il FFC è GRATIS e APERTO A TUTTI GLI STUDENTI.

Vino e popcorn gratis. Portate pure i vostri drink e spuntini personali.

E non dimenticate il cuscino per sedervi!!

Food Film Club presents:

 

What: Dabbawallas: The Lunchbox Miracle

When: Wednesday Sept. 26th, 7pm

Where: The Gastronomic Society, (aperitivo outdoors, movie indoors), see Google Maps

With: Free wine, snacks and popcorn. Feel free to also bring your own.

As always, Food Film Club is FREE & OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS! You do not need to be a member of the Gastronomic Society to attend.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of going to the cinema? First dates? Hollywood glitz? Two hours of escapism?

Or do you think of buckets of popcorn, oversized sodas, chocolates and ending up with inevitable post-movie guilt & a hideously furry tongue from having gorged on terrible cinema snacks. Yup, we’ve all been there.

Eating while movie watching is practically essential, but why has it become the norm to subject our tastebuds to utter rubbish while we enjoy what is (hopefully) a great movie?

Thankfully, there are folks out there working to eradicate the cinema-induced-sugar-coma, people who want to provide as much pleasure to your stomach as you hope to give your eyes. [Check out this podcast from BBC Food Program] Because doesn’t it make sense to eat good sushi while watching  ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’? Or to have a really good glass of pinot noir (but definitely not merlot) to accompany ‘Sideways’?

We think so. Which is why we’re providing fresh and delicious Indian food at Food Film Club’s showing ofDabbawallas: The Lunchbox Miracle, this Wednesday at the Gastronomic Society. You can expect spicy, complex vegetarian mouthfuls to go along with the fascinating story of the men who effectively deliver hundreds of thousands of homemade lunches around Mumbai everyday. As well as being visually satisfying, this documentary exposes an inspiring system that is intriguing multinational corporations with it’s effortless ingenuity and accuracy against all odds. Read more about it here

So, redefine your sense of cinema, break away from bad movie-night binge syndrome, and join us for something spicy and special on Wednesday.

Food Film Club aims to be delicious, informative, beautiful and entertaining, and is always FREE & OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS!

Tomorrow night: Food Film Club Presents

Eat, Drink, Man, Woman

It’s official! The ASSG Food Film Club has been launched. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first screening. We gathered under the stars with abundant popcorn, wine and some other delicious contributions, to watch the fantastic ‘Big Night’ by director Stanley Tucci.

If you couldn’t make it and missed seeing the famous omelet scene, or the making of a stunning Timpano, never fear! We’ll be hosting the next FFC screening on Thursday July 19th at 9pm, with Ang Lee’s, ‘Eat Drink Man Woman’.

This critically acclaimed film explores complex family relationships through food and appetite, following the lives of the greatest chef in Taipei and his three daughters. As with ‘Big Night’, subtleties of expression are conveyed in food preparation with sensitivity and to pleasurable effect. By all accounts, especially this one.

It’s a must see. And if you’re not already sold, read this:

“Intermingling a sexual episode with a glimpse of Mr. Chu blowing air into a duck, Mr. Lee often makes his characters seem oblivious in certain basic ways.”

Now you’re intrigued, right?

So, come and join us.
Thursday July 19th, 9pm, Via San Germano 14.
Free to all students!
Wine and popcorn are provided for free, but please bring your own, too, if you wish.
Blankets, pillows and mosquito protection are recommended!!

E ‘ufficiale! L’ASSG Club Food Film è stato lanciato. Grazie a tutti coloro che si sono uniti a noi per la prima proiezione. Ci siamo riuniti sotto le stelle con abbondanti popcorn, vino e alcuni altri deliziosi contributi per vedere il fantastico ‘Big Night’ del regista Stanley Tucci.

Se eri impegnato e non hai potuto vedere la famosa scena x frittata, o la realizzazione di una splendida Timpano, non ti preoccupare! Giovedi prossimo, 19 luglio alle 21:00, verra’ proiettato un film con Ang Lee, ‘Eat Drink Man Woman.

Questo film acclamato dalla critica esplora le relazioni familiari complesse attraverso il cibo e l’appetito, seguendo la vita del più grande chef di Taipei e le sue tre figlie. Come con ‘Big Night’, sottigliezze di espressione vengono convogliate nella preparazione dei cibi con sensibilità e di piacevole effetto. A detta di tutti, soprattutto questo uno.

E ‘assolutamente da vedere. E se non l’avete gia’ visto, leggete questo: “Mescolare un episodio sessuale con uno scorcio di Mr. Chu mentre soffia aria in un papero, I personaggi di Mr. Lee spesso sembrano in un certo modo ignari”.

Ora sei incuriosito, vero?

Quindi, venite e unitevi a noi.

Giovedi 19 Luglio 09:00, Via San Germano 14.

Gratuito a tutti gli studenti!

Vino e popcorn vengono forniti gratuitamente, ma per favore portare qualcosa anche voi, se volete.

Coperte, cuscini e protezione contro le zanzare sono consigliate!
