Soul Kitchen



Dir. Fatih Akin. 2009, 99 mins. An irresistibly entertaining multi-culti farce from a director better known for his dramatic films (Head On, At the Edge of Heaven), Soul Kitchen tells the story of a young German-Greek diner owner who—anticipating gentrification of his industrial Hamburg neighborhood—transforms his scruffy fish-stick counter into a haute-boho destination. An energetic soundtrack of funk, punk, and reggae complements an eclectic cast of characters, rapid-fire silliness, and lavish food fun. (Not rated)

Pre-screening performances begin at  Socrates Sculpture Park at 7:00 p.m.
