Fridays in August at Friese-Green Club feature films with the theme "even more banned!"

Screening:  The Tin Drum (1979)

Director:  Volker Schlöndorff

Plot:  Oskar Matzerath (David Bennent) is a very unusual boy. Refusing to leave the womb until promised a tin drum by his mother, Agnes (Angela Winkler), Oskar is reluctant to enter a world he sees as filled with hypocrisy and injustice, and vows on his third birthday to never grow up. Miraculously, he gets his wish. As the Nazis rise to power in Danzig, Oskar wills himself to remain a child, beating his tin drum incessantly and screaming in protest at the chaos surrounding him.


ABOUT THE CLUB

The Friese-Greene Club is a small, informal members' club on a quiet soi in Bangkok's Sukhumvit area.  It's name comes from the British pioneer of motion pictures, William Friese-Greene.  The club was created to celebrate the film industry and bring together notable film-makers, students, advocates, enthusiasts, and anyone that likes great movies!  The club has nightly screenings of often rare and older films, also concentrating on themes that are institutional to the development of the film industry.  The three-floor club features a restuarant/bar, private sofas, and a real 9-seat cinema.  You're guaranteed to see something new at the club, and it is truly one of Bangkok's hidden gems.
