WINE CALLING arrives at an interesting time in our collective environmental awareness, exploring sustainable French wineries and the philosophy of the people who tend to it. A deeply humanistic documentary, WINE CALLING is sure to deepen perspectives on the notion of ethical consumption itself. The admission to our special screening will include a glass of wine from La Cave Apicole (featured in the film), allowing you to totally immerse yourself in the experience and taste the south of France. 🍷 Producer Nicolas Manuel will be there to answer your questions during cocktail hour, and to introduce the film!
While there are more than 3,000 wine growers in France, less than 3 percent of them are working in bio, biodynamic or natural methods of wine production. For ethical reasons, this relatively small community of wine growers has chosen environmentally friendly farming practices aimed at finding the natural expression of “terroir” – the full breadth of land, geography and climate – and the living character of the wine. It’s in the south of France, in the heart of Catalonia, that WINE CALLING has filmed for over a year, from the harvest to the bottling, witnessing the rise of a global movement for taste and sustainability. – Synopsis
“Besides the obvious beautiful images of vineyards and the ongoing appetite for French wine and food culture, the documentary is really about the current movement for more organic products : if you want them in your plate, then it’s only natural to want them in your glass as well.” – WTFilms

We will also be offering a selection of non-alcoholic beverages on request during our cocktail hour from 7pm. At 8pm, the screening begins, introduced by producer Nicolas Manuel. Tickets available both online and at the cinema, but please help us organizing this special event by reserving your tickets in advance if you can!
