For the first time, the Zernike Cinema is hosting its weekly movie nights this week Wednesday and Thursday (September 29 and 30).
Every Wednesday and Thursday, the Zernike Cinema will invite movie enthusiasts to watch movies in a unique and cosy setting in the middle of the Zernike Campus.
The series of movie nights will kick off on Wednesday, September 29th, with the documentary “100UP” presenting seven centenarians’ daily lives and adventurous pasts. Heddy Honigman, the Peruvian-born Dutch director of the movie, tells each protagonist’s life story, including their most beautiful and tragic life moments. This movie promises feel-good moments and life advice by the very eldest in our societies.
The Biggest Little Farm
The second (award-winning) movie presented this week is John Chesters’ documentary about his and his wife’s life-changing decision to give up their L.A. apartment in exchange for an abandoned farm in California. The couple documents seven years transforming the barren landscape into an eco-friendly paradise. Johns’ skills as a professional wildlife filmer translate into unique shots of flora and fauna. The movie promises not only beautiful pictures but a critical reflection on modern societies’ ideas about progress, success, and happiness.
