Hello Albatross Members!

I'm pleased to host my first activity with this group for those of you who enjoy Foreign and Independent Films as much as I do!

Inspired by a group I ran for five years in Los Angeles showing new/offbeat or classic independent/foreign films and discussing them with other film lovers I've decided to open up my apartment to do this here and get to know more people. If you also enjoy trying new types of food and wine this group will focus on pot-luck "themed" meals also inspired by the films we select which I'll be picking based on your suggestions!

The event will go as follows:


18:00 to 19: Protected content arrives. We'll be pouring glasses of wine, beer, or cocktails and getting to know each other.

20: Protected content Starts

22: Protected content Ends

22: Protected content - We'll discuss the film and eat desserts.

-------------------------------------- Protected content

To participate, please be willing to contribute TWO of the following (any combination): You will notice we pick items from the country where the film takes place.

- an Israeli/Palestinian inspired hors d'oeuvres/appetizer, or main dish to share before the film, when we'll spend some time getting to know each other.

- an Israeli/Palestinian dessert to share during our discussion after the film.

- a bottle (or two, if you are unable to bring an appetizer or dessert) of wine, beer, or cocktail to share throughout.

As we get closer to the event, everyone coming should post what they're planning to bring on the message board. This helps all of us to see what else we need, and avoid duplicates.
