About this event

At once a rousing paean to artistic creation, a delicate evocation of divine grace, and the ultimate film about food, the Oscar-winning Babette’s Feast (1987) is a deeply beloved treasure of cinema. Directed by Gabriel Axel and adapted from a story by Isak Dinesen, it is the lovingly layered tale of a French housekeeper with a mysterious past who brings quiet revolution in the form of one exquisite meal to a circle of starkly pious villagers in late nineteenth-century Denmark. Babette’s Feast combines earthiness and reverence in an indescribably moving depiction of sensual pleasure that goes to your head like fine champagne.

Film goers are invited to meet at the Old Bank Restaurant after the conclusion of Smokescreen for a lively discussion about the film and a free standard drink.

Smokescreen brings to life iconic and influential films from the history of cinema. In 2019, Smokescreen will be exploring a series of 10 films, each a masterpiece based on great, timeless literature.

Smokescreen takes place at the Western Plains Cultural Centre in the Drama Room in the Community Arts Centre, 76 Wingewarra Street, Dubbo.
