The Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT) kicks off its September screenings tonight, September 7, with Belgian film “Two Days, One Night (Deux Jours, Une Nuit).”
Produced by the legendary Dardenne brothers, “Two Days, One Night” stars Oscar-nominated Marion Cottilard. The actress plays a middle-class housewife named Sandra, who, after overcoming a battle with depression, finds out that her co-workers have colluded in an attempt to force her out of her job. What follows is a story of strength, struggle, and self-discovery.
The screening is being supported by the Royal Embassy of Belgium, which has provided Belgian beers Leffe Blond and Stella Artois, as well as cheeses, for the event. Entry and goodies are free for members; beer costs B150 and cheese B100 for non-members.
On Wednesday, September 9, head back to the FCCT to see “Thirty Years On: The Killing of Neil Davis and Bill Latch,” a documentary that includes a panel discussion after the viewing.
Later in the month, on September 28, the club will screen Oscar-nominated “Kon-Tiki.” The film is a re-creation of the incredible “Kon-Tiki” expedition of 1947, when daring Norwegian anthropologist and adventurer Thor Heyerdahl, with a crew of five, charted an epic 4300-mile, 101-day crossing of the Pacific Ocean on a simple balsa wood raft. This daredevil voyage from Peru to Polynesia sought to prove that South Americans could have been able to settle in Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.
The screening of “Kon-Tiki” is supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy, which will provide Norwegian beer as well as smoked salmon and other snacks.
