Bike for Good
Saturday 8th June, 3 – 7pm
Free and unticketed, first come first served
Black Cat, White Cat is a riotous mix of farce, romance and crime. Set within a community of Roma people, it tells a story of young love, family ties and magical occurrences. Zare is in love with beautiful Ida but his father Matko, having botched up a black market deal, intends to marry him off to the sister of a powerful gangster – a woman so tiny that her nickname is Ladybird. Beautifully filmed on the banks of the Danube and directed by Emir Kusturica (Underground), this colourful comedy is crammed with spectacle, incident and the powerful Romani music. Silver Lion Winner at the Venice Film Festival 1998.
Please note: The BBFC have rated this film is Cert 15 for drug use and coarse language but the venue will have a special area for children separate from the screening with child friendly activities allowing people to bring their children along.
This film was been chosen especially to screen by the Romano Lav youth group in Govanhill who programmed this event in conjunction with Southside Film Festival. There will be traditional food served and musical performances alongside the screening. Southside Film and Romano Lav will present a Roma Film Festival in Govanhill later in 2019 so this event is a flavour of things to come!
This screening has been supported by Regional Screen Scotland through their Challenge Fund.
