Feast Your Eyes: The Scent of Green Papaya
FEAST YOUR EYES: THE SCENT OF GREEN PAPAYA
Our monthly gastronomic feature followed by a meal in the IFI Café Bar.
Shot entirely on a sound stage in France but set in Saigon in the decades before the outbreak of the Vietnam War, The Scent of Green Papaya won the prestigious Caméra d’Or prize at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film the same year. The story is told through the eyes of Mùi, a servant who sets about her tasks with delicacy and grace, including the preparation of the unripe papaya.
After the film, join us in the IFI Café Bar for your choice of the following: Traditional Sour Beef and Noodle Soup; Light Summer Roll Salad; or Vietnamese Curry with Chicken and Pineapple.
Tickets €20. Free list suspended.
