Mothpeople /sessions: #2 - District 9 (SA, 2009) @ Bann Bar & Cuisine

mothpeople will be back with the second edition of /sessions on the 25th of July at Bann Bar, one of Saigon's most refreshing venues dedicated to music and the arts, with a delightful selection of carefully-crafted cocktails and great vibes.

/sessions is a film club-esque concept where we screen a selected film every fortnight and after the screening ends, we have a little discussion about the film, as well as specific topics related to each film. This event is catered to those who view films as a catalyst for discussion, instead of just a source of entertainment. Our objective is to create a culture where we watch films together. and then turn it into a proper 2-way discussion about what the film meant to you.

We encourage all attendees to participate in this.

ENTRY:
>By Donation (screening + discussion)
>VND120,000 (+ popcorn)
>VND200,000 (+ 1 TeTe Beer)
>VND250,000 (+ 1 Tete Beer + popcorn)

Bann Bar's Happy Hours will go on between 6pm-8pm: buy 1 get 1 for your next round on (only) Classic Cocktails & Mixed drinks at same or lower price.

In 1982, a massive star ship bearing a bedraggled alien population, nicknamed "The Prawns," appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa.

Twenty-eight years later, the initial welcome by the human population has faded. The refugee camp where the aliens were located has deteriorated into a militarized ghetto called District 9, where they are confined and exploited in squalor. In 2010, the munitions corporation, Multi-National United, is contracted to forcibly evict the population with operative Wikus van der Merwe in charge. In this operation, Wikus is exposed to a strange alien chemical and must rely on the help of his only two new 'Prawn' friends. -IMDb
