Film Screening x Wine/Chocolate Tasting: Chocolat

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2019 with the theme #balanceforbetter, let’s reflect upon the femininity and masculinity in the 21st century through the community screening of ‘Chocolat’.

We will go through the story of a single woman and her daughter opening a chocolate shop in a small French village and shaking up the rigid morality of the community, and try to answer these questions:

Do traditional gender roles still hold? What does gender balance mean in today’s context? Moving forward, how can we best support each other to live out the full potentials of our femininity/masculinity?

Inspired by the movie, we will be tasting artisan chocolates by Cocoraw (made with love) paired with hand-picked German dessert wine.

Our host, Kevin, who specialised in Film Studies, will bring you through an immersive collective viewing experience and interactive dialogues about the themes of this inspirational movie.
