This event took place on Wednesday 22nd March 2017.
March’s pairing of a new release and a specially devised main course menu will be Icíar Bollaín’s The Olive Tree, followed by a feast inspired by the film in the IFI Café Bar.
20-year-old Alma works on a farm in a deprived region of Spain. She has a deep bond with her beloved grandfather, who has not spoken since the family’s ancient olive tree was sold.

Lamb meatballs in an almond sauce served with a rustic baguette
Sea bass, fennel, red pepper chorizo risotto
Artichoke, red peppers, green peas, olives, chicory salad
