dir. Andreas Johnsen, Denmark 2016

73 min, age recommendation 12+, Danish + English subtitles

With UN estimates that food production will need to increase 70% to feed the planet by 2050, the daily reality of insects as a foodstuff may not be far away. Enter two indefatigable chef researchers, who travel the globe in search of great tastes and sustainable production models – even if it means crispy creepy-crawlies or succulent wriggling maggots. A timely, entertaining doc to make you think twice about what you’re prepared to put on your plate.

Doors open 6pm, film starts 7pm. Browse Skandium’s Scandinavian design range in store prior to the screening, accompanied by cheese and wine! Courtesy of Skandium and Jarlsberg.

A MAN CALLED OVE

Sun 11 Dec, 6.30pm – Regent Street Cinema, London

dir. Hannes Holm, Sweden 2015, London Premiere

116 mins, age recommendation 12+, Swedish + English subtitles

In this adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestseller, Rolf Lassgård stars in the lead role of Ove, a cranky middle-aged man whose mission in life appears to be keeping watch over his neighbours like a hawk, ready to castigate anyone for the slightest thing he disapproves of. However, an unlikely friendship begins to develop when the pregnant Parvaneh and her family move into the neighbourhood. A Man Called Ove is a heart-warming comedy drama on love, friendship and forgiveness, with a standout performance from Rolf Lassgård.
