Irish Premier of Natural Resistance, directed by Jonathan Nossiter

A real treat for lovers of food and wine is the screening of the documentary Natural Resistance, directed by Jonathan Nossiter, which follows a group of Italian winemakers dedicated to resisting the prevalent use of chemicals. A former sommelier, Nossiter’s Mondovino, a documentary about the globalization of the wine industry was nominated for the Palme D’Or in Cannes in 2004, one of only three documentaries ever nominated in the history of the festival.

 

Nossiter didn't foresee returning to the topic until last summer when he found himself in Tuscany, seated with Italian winemakers dedicated to resisting the prevalent use of chemicals. Nossiter instinctively turned on his camera and continued to follow these subjects against the sun-kissed backdrop of Italian vineyards.  This is the Irish Premier of this documentary about the  wine industry followed by an Italian inspired rustic supper paired with wine from the growers featured in the film. The event will take place at the Grainstore in Ballymaloe House, Shanagarry, Co Cork on Friday 6th March, 2015 at 19:00.

 

Tickets to Natural Resistance and the rustic inspired banquet in the Ballymaloe Grainstore are available on www.corkfrenchfilmfestival.com
