1. [Food] Bourbon County Brand Stout ’19 at BeerTemple
(American BeerBar BeerTemple; Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 250, 1012 RR Amsterdam)
“BCS was first brewed back in the early 90’s and is considered to be the first (official) barrel aged beer. Till this day, it’s still one of the most respected beers in the world.
Not only will we be having the this year’s Bourbon County Brand Stout Original on our taps, but we’ll also be pouring ’18. A great opportunity to try both together.”

It is the only British feature film in the 1970s to be solely directed by a woman; a film about a group of female patients in a therapy session.”

5. [Cinema; Lecture] Agnès Varda: Feminist Activist Filmmaker — Lecture
(LAB 111; Arie Biemondstraat 111, 1054 PD Amsterdam)
“In this lecture, Ozgen-Tuncer will focus on Agnès Varda’s feminist activist filmmaking with short snippets from her filmography. Varda is mostly considered an enigmatic filmmaker with an eclectic filmography. The variety of styles and genres in Varda’s filmography reflect her never-ending journey, seeking for a new, non-patriarchal film aesthetics. Always on the move, Varda continued this journey until the very end, she never stopped making films. We will revisit certain moments in Varda’s journey and talk about her search for feminist aesthetics, within the wider context of feminist theory, art and activism.” è un progetto indipendente di giornalismo partecipativo.
