Hi Everyone!

It's been a while since we've met or gathered virtually so rather than continue to postpone our group events I thought about continuing with our "virtual movie" and dinners together.

For some of you whom have participated before, please try to make or buy a dish from the country of the film or you can also present just a fun dish that has inspired you during confinement.

Beginning at 18:30 people can showcase their recipes/dishes but we'll likely try to start the film no later than 19:00. For the movie viewing please order/download the film ahead of time.

Once the film ends, I'll send another zoom invitation and then we can engage in our discussion of the film. It will be optional at this time whether you guys want to also have a dessert together. Please note, this film is 2hrs 25 mins so we'll start at 19:00 and we'll resume our post-film discussion at 22:00.

Looking forward to "seeing" all soon!

Our featured film:

Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears -

Living together in a workers' dorm, Katerina (Vera Alentova) and her friends are determined to make it in Moscow. But when a boorish cameraman (Juri Wassiliev) forces himself on her, Katerina finds herself pregnant and alone as her friends move on. Twenty years later, she's fought to become a factory director, outpacing her old roommates career-wise, but still alone but for her daughter. When she meets a genial mechanic (Aleksey Batalov), love seems possible again.
