Together with Heat, an Agency that represents filmmakers, we present a bi-monthly movie night curated by their wide array of passioned creators, designed for everyone looking to connect and be inspired. Every edition will center around a unique host and their inspiring guests; they’ll select a main film that showcases what they are all about and motivates them within their creative field. And they will take you on a two-hour journey into their vision.
This third edition will be hosted by Joenoes Polnaija, with 2002's City of God as the main film. This Brazilian crime drama tells the story of two boys growing up in one of the world's most notorious neighbourhoods: the 'Cidade de Deus' in Rio de Janeiro. Trying to escape poverty, they both take different paths: one becomes a photographer, the other a drug dealer. "If you run, the beast catches you; if you stay, the beast eats you."
Melkweg often hosts different types of programmes at the same time, such as concerts, club nights and films. Please note that there may occasionally be some noise pollution from other programmes during the screening.
