On Friday May 31st, Roffa Mon Amour + Paviljoen aan het Water are joining forces again for a night with food and film. We’re going to enjoy a delicious dinner made by the unique talent Luise Hartel before the film Sound of Metal (2019) by Darius Marder starts on the waterfront of Charlois surrounded by the lights of the city.

 

About the film: Sound of Metal (2019)

Ruben is an ex-heroin-addict drummer. While on his tour with his lead singer/girlfriend, Ruben realizes that his hearing, the most precious ability to a musician, is rapidly deteriorating. As this sudden hearing loss turns his world upside down, and numbing fear paired with angry denial takes over, Ruben reluctantly accepts to join a small deaf community overseen by Joe, a compassionate Vietnam War veteran. But, is Ruben willing to accept his new life and learn how to be deaf?

Sound of Metal dives deep into life’s tough questions: disability, resilience, addiction, relationships, and faith. It’s a movie that sticks with you, making you ponder long after the credits roll. It shows us the harsh realities of these struggles but also the power of community in overcoming them.

About Luise

Luise works as a freelancer at the intersection of communication, sustainability and music festivals. When it comes to cooking, she can best be described as adept amateur with a strong desire to transform plants into food.

About the food: Taste of plants

Luise’s cooking style is somewhere inbetween intuitive and conceptual: Instead of a recipe, she tends to start with a vegetable and adds an extra layer – answering a specific question, matching colors, combining textures or going for food alliterations. In her dream world, each meal would consist of at least 5 vegetables across 3 plates – so you can share and hopefully connect with each other in the process. 

About the music performance

Before the film starts, two members of the music band Loveth Besamoh will warm us up with a music performance. Loveth Besamoh is a 23-year-old producer and songwriter from Rotterdam with roots in Cameroon, where he played percussion in church and at a boarding school. His music moves between new wave, krautpunk, and a fusion of genres, including electronica, shoe gaze, afro rock, jazz, post-punk and afro psychedelica, combined with rhythms he listened to and played in church. He strives to maintain his origins in his music and easily bends genres into his own psychedelic sound. 

His music is incredibly dynamic, ranging from songs reminiscent of King Krule to Death Grips. The band’s live performances are very energetic, as seen at Popronde, Eendrachts Festival and North Sea Round Town. 

What you can expect

During Sound of Metal (2019) x taste of plants, you will be served a small number of uncomplicated yet unexpected plant-based dishes to share.
