Film to Table: The Apple

Four-course dinner with wine pairing

Watch the imported 35mm print of Samira Makhmalbaf’s directorial debut, then join your fellow filmgoers for a scrumptious meal, prepared and served by Babette chefs Joan and Patrick. Film and dinner require separate ticket purchase.

In this 1998 Iranian film, Makhmalbaf blends a fictionalized plot over a shocking real-life tale of two sisters imprisoned by their parents. “Experimental docudrama, open-ended essay, [and] a remarkable movie” (J. Hoberman).
