Bring your appetite for KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival and KinoVino‘s screening of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s The Double Life of Veronique followed by a multi-course dinner created by Flavia Borawska, a rising star of Polish gastronomy.
About the film
The precursor to Kieślowski’s beloved Three Colours trilogy, The Double Life of Veronique is a mystic story divided in two parts. First we meet Veronika in Kraków who gets noticed for her singing and is invited to sing at a concert. Then there’s Veronique who lives in Paris and falls in love with a puppeteer. We’re never sure exactly how the women are connected, but it’s clear that they are. The point is not to try and get to the bottom of this, but rather to let the feeling of cosmic company wash over you.
Running since 2015, KinoVino marries the best of world cinema with some of the most innovative menus inspired by films and brought to life by the UK’s leading chefs. For each edition KinoVino creates an immersive experience where film, food and wine are curated under one theme, with the original room decor and tablescapes reflecting and enhancing the theme of the night.
KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival takes place in London each spring. Organised by the Polish Cultural Institute in London, the festival celebrates the best of Polish cinema and culture. Each year audiences can enjoy a selection of film and documentary screenings, both classic and contemporary, as well as talks and Q&As with the filmmakers. A selection of interactive forums and classes is always on offer, as well as live music and art exhibitions.
