Cous Cous at Café Crema

Thursday night film screenings are back at Café Crema (306 New Cross Road) with the licenses all sorted once again…

This week on January 14th they are showing Abdel Kechiche’s ‘Couscous’, a portrait of the French-Tunisian community in the French port of Sète. 'Basically an ensemble piece, it pokes into the lives of the two extended families belonging to a separated, 60-year-old immigrant shipworker, Slimane (Habib Boufares). When unemployment hits, it is the grain and red mullet dish his estranged wife so lovingly prepares which he hopes may prove the central selling point of a new restaurant he plans to open on a reconditioned quayside barge'.

Film plus polenta, or sweet cakes and wine, all for £6. Doors 7.30pm; film starts at 8.oopm.
