Movie and dinner, Berlin celebrates Moldova as never before

Discovering Moldova’s culture through cinema and typical Moldovan cuisine

A night in the name of cinema and culinary specialties, everything themed Moldova: we are talking about Moldovan Day, the third of five events organised by Travelling Film Festival Berlin, taking place in Berlin from 28th November to 2nd December 2018. The event is hosted by IL KINO in Neukölln. On the night of 30th November 2018, in the welcoming cinema and bistrot on Maybachufer, Moldovan Day will take place, an event entirely dedicated to Moldovan cinematographic and culinary traditions. The ticket costs 15€ and includes film and dinner: after a short presentation by the delegates from Moldovan Embassy in Berlin, a Moldovan movie will be screened in original version with English subtitles. Afterwards Moldovan specialties will be served. In a single day it will be possible to discover the language, the atmosphere and the flavors of a country, so particular but often not well-known by tourists.

Moldovan Day: the plot of “Wedding in Bessarabia”

The Moldovan movie chosen for the night of 30th November 2018 is “Wedding in Bessarabia” (original title: Nunta in Basarabia), directed by Napoleon Helmis in 2009. The film will be screened in original version with English subtitles. The comedy tells the love story between a Rumanian conductor and a Moldovan pianist and the vicissitudes of the couple in organising the wedding and the conflicts between the families of the spouses. The movie points out the differences between Romania and Moldova.

After the movie, dinner with typical Moldovan specialties

After the screening of the movie, the buffet dinner will be served to give a taste of Moldovan specialties. Moldovan cuisine represents an interesting mixture of eastern and western flavors and the menu includes quiches and cakes (Placinta), with different basis (cheese, cabbage and apples). The Placinta is a very common dish in Moldova, made with fried bread filled with several ingredients, generally cheese, potatoes or cabbage.
