Lemesos International Documentary Festival – Almyra Screenings
1 May 2018 Events
Design and Mixology Feature in Documentary Films Screened at Almyra.
Every August, the Lemesos International Documentary Festival presents films offering new perspectives on contemporary culture through innovative cinematographic approaches. This year, two of the screenings take place at Eauzone, Almyra’s al fresco poolside lounge.
On Thursday, 9 August, at 20:30, the festival presents How to Steal a Chair, the story of Greek designer and collector Stergios Delialis. Delialis is best known as founder of the Thessaloniki Design Museum, which rose to prominence in the 1990s with solo exhibitions and thematic displays drawing on his collection of 3,000 industrial design objects. After an extraordinary five-year run, he secures a deal with the Ministry of Culture to create a permanent home for the museum—only to see the deal go bad. The museum closed, he suffers at 72 the burden of his collection and the loss of his dream—yet plans a retrospective of his iconoclastic design work.
On Friday, 10 August, at 20:30, the festival presents Bar Talks by Schumann. Charles Schumann, legendary bartender, proprietor of Schumann’s Bar in Munich, and author of celebrated guidebooks for mixing cocktails, introduces viewers to some of the most beautiful bars in the world, taking us on a journey that includes New York, Havana, and Tokyo. At 22:30, the festival closes with a gala party accompanied by the tunes of Salted Bossa. Screenings are free, and cocktail service is available.
