Robots and drug cartels
At Stenløse Kulturhus you can experience the film ‘Alice Cares’ about a robot designed to keep company to elderly people. In the film, researchers conduct and experiment by bringing Alice-the-robot into the homes of lonely but skeptical pensioners, raising the question whether a machine can replace human contact. Join the discussion after the screening during a brunch and debate arranged together with an organization for the elderly in Egedal.
An example of a community coming together to fight for what it believes in can be seen in ‘Cartel Land’, coming to Gentofte. In the film, a group of Mexican civilians join forces to combat the growing violence and trafficking linked to drug cartels operating in their area. A poignant film, after which journalist and specialist in Latin-American culture and society Jens Lohmann will give a presentation on the question at Hovedbibliotek in Gentofte.
Fine cuisine and magic mushrooms
Get a glimpse of the world of Michelin star restaurant Noma and its chef René Redzepi in the film ‘Noma – My Perfect Storm’, which will be screened in Nakskov Teatersal. In Lolland the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy a full culinary experience with a special tapas menu made from seasonal ingredients offered after the screening of the film.
In Rødovre Lorenzo “Guf” Woodrose will take the audience on a quest to find a different kind of ingredient – magic mushrooms. The Danish musician and underground hero invites us into his psychedelic world of drugs and rock’ n’ roll. After the screening the audience will have the chance to experience the eccentric figure live when he gives a concert at Viften.
These events and many more screenings will take place under DOX:ON:TOUR November 5-20 all over Denmark and in Skåne. Find out more and buy your ticketshere.
