First Friday Screening + Cocktail Class: L’imbalsamatore
March 13 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm$35
This month’s First Friday screening — off-set by a week because we’ll be in Italy before then! — doubles-up as a cocktail class where you’ll learn to make your own signature take on the classic Negroni (my personal favourite).
6:30 – welcome and mingling
7:00 – cocktail class
8:00 – screening of L’imbalsamatore (Matteo Garrone, 2002)
10:00 – discussion and send-off
Synopsis of L’imbalsamatore: Peppino (Ernesto Mahieux) is a skilled but lonely taxidermist until he crosses paths with Valerio (Valerio Foglia Manzillo), a handsome waiter in search of a better job. Peppino is strangely attracted to the charismatic young man and offers him a cushy position as his apprentice. To curry favor with his pretty-boy aide, Peppino lavishes him with gifts. But when Valerio meets the beautiful Deborah (Elisabetta Rocchetti), a twisted love triangle evolves that can only spell disaster.
