25.08.2016 | Sport | 24.08.2016 | In collaboration with Cinema Delicatessen, we are presenting Het Filmweekend on September 24 and 25. The films Young Wrestlers (2016) and Ants On A Shrimp (2016) will be shown at Het Gymlokaal and Restaurant DS these days. With these films, the goal is create a link with Het Gymlokaal and Restaurant DS by organizing a MMA clinic and serving Japanese amuses previously to the films.
We have invited Grappling champion Akmel Wahouie from Vos Gym the 24th of September. He will explain the basics of the sport MMA, with the primary focus on the aspect of wrestling. The participants will continue to work in teams and apply the basics themselves, after which Ecopura will hand out free protein shakes. After the clinic we’ll be showing the intimate documentary Young Wrestlers. This film displays the thin dividing line between friendship and competition in the wrestling academy in the Turkish province Amasyavan. Just like other boys of their age, Ahmet and his 25 classmates grapple with the desire of recognition, with homesickness and their target weight. But most of all, they’re competing with and against each other in order to reach the same dream: Olympic gold.
On Sunday September 25, Het Filmweekend will begin will a series of Japanese amuses, made by our head chef Lennard Ylstra. After the amuses in Restaurant DS, the evening will move to Het Gymlokaal, where Ants On A Shrimp will be shown. Ants On A Shrimp is a unique and exciting food documentary in which one of the best restaurants of the world, Noma in Copenhagen with their famous and charismatic chef Redzepi, moves to Tokyo for a period of five weeks for a rare culinary experiment.
During both days, we'll be serving our authentic ramen noodles for dinner at Café DS.
