Monday Movie Night – Cocoon – 16 November 2020

16 November @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm GMT

Virtual Event

Join us for a Monday Movie Night on Zoom to enjoy the film COCOON as part of AMPLIFY FILM FESTIVAL. We’ll open a zoom for any LBTQ women to join us to share our love of lesbian film and watch this feature film. The first half an hour is general discussion and catch up, followed by 95 minutes watching the film. Then after the film, we’ll chat about the film and other stuff. A great way to stay connected to our community!

Nora is a young 14-year-old growing up in Berlin, where her mother is largely absent and her older sister is more interested in impressing boys. There’s a danger she will become another Carrie; but this is not that kind of film. Enter Romy — young, cool, and definitely not interested in boys. She and Nora are drawn to each other, and Nora begins to discover happiness, coming out of her cocoon and emerging as a… you follow…

Leonie Krippendorff’s film is full of life, energy, and fun. It speaks to any of us who remember what it was like to be young and marginalised, and then discover you can be the centre of someone else’s universe.

➡️How to watch this film

We come together on Zoom, but we watch the series on our own devices so you will need access to Lesflicks to rent the title. If you are on an iPad/iPhone you cannot use Zoom and watch video at the same time due to something in the set up of Apple Devices. So you will need to leave the zoom whilst we are watching the title. We will let you back in!!!

The Zoom is free, but you will need to rent the film; the rental fee is £5 (however Lesflicks has a discount code getting you 10% off).

THIS FILM FESTIVAL IS GEOBLOCKED TO THE UK: Struggling to access either of these resources or away on holiday outside of the UK but still want to join in? Try using a VPN (https://www.lesflicks.com/read/general-article/what-is-a-vpn-and-why-is-it-useful/) to place yourself in another country.
