Kinima presents: Black Cat White Cat + Cine-Variety Saturday 13th September
Kinima are back at the Cinema Museum! For their second event they are excited to present Emir Kusturica’s madcap comedy Black Cat White Cat(1998) in 35mm. Set in a colourful Gypsy settlement on the banks of the Danube, the movie tells a manic and charming story of dodgy deals, family ties, magical occurrences, life, death and romance. It’s furious energy is complemented by a spectacular score by the travelling gipsy band No Smoking Orchestra.
Doors open at 17.30. Food and drinks served.

Set in Moravia towards the end of WWII, Karel Kachyna’s forgotten masterpiece jumbles reality, memory and fantasy to capture the intensity of childhood in a war zone. Oldrich is the runt of his village, beaten by his father, bullied by the other boys. But he has imagination on his side, and a wiry toughness they can’t defeat.
