Arthouse Cinema - Group Leaders: Liz Kite and Lennart Christensen
October’s selection from the range of arthouse, classic film noir and foreign films is the Danish black comedy Another Round (Druk) from 2020 directed by Thomas Vinterberg and starring Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Magnus Millang, and Lars Ranthe. Four teachers discuss a theory that humans are born with a blood alcohol content (BAC) deficiency of 0.05, and that attempting to maintain such a BAC makes one more creative and relaxed. They decide to test it in real life but the experiment soon gets out of hand.
The film won this year's Oscar for Best International Feature Film and was also nominated for Best Director. It also won BAFTA Award for Best Film Not in the English Language and European Film Award for Best Film. We will show it on Tuesday 26th October at 2.00 pm in our bungalow in Barkingside.
