The second edition of “Screen on the Sky” – outdoor screenings of documentary films with great food and drinks – is set for the rooftop of River City Bangkok on February 23.



The Documentary Club and RCB Film Club will be presenting “Ada for Mayor” at 7.30pm and “Itzhak” at 9.30 with Thai and English subtitles.

“Ada for Mayor” tracks Spanish citizen activist Ada Colau through a full year, ending the day she’s sworn in as the mayor of Barcelona. 

The intimate chronicle includes Colau’s own video diary as it pursues two prevalent themes – an historic victory illustrative of the political changes taking place in southern Europe, and the inner struggle of someone who fears becoming what she has so often questioned.

 

The star of “Itzhak” is revered classical violinist Itzhak Perlman. If there’s anyone who personifies the resilience, the vision and ultimately the contribution of the Jewish people, it is he. 

In Perlman and his music, we hear the story of obstacles and survival, trace the path of the Jewish people from the chaos of Europe to the promise of Israel, and see the comfort of home and family and witness how humour and talent combine with discipline and drive.

Admission is Bt250 at the door, Bt200 is booked by February 20. Send the money to Bangkok Bank account “movies matter”, 2330629755, then send your name and receipt to docclub.ticket@gmail.com.
