Alphavillie Film Screening with Wine & Chocolate TastingVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Let us welcome you back to our wonderful heritage site in Admiralty for this open-air screening of the classic film Alphaville by the late great French-Swiss director, Jean-Luc Godard. The program will kick off with a wine and chocolate tasting hosted by The Consulate General of Switzerland, followed by the film screening at our Lippo Amphitheater.
Lemmy Caution, a secret agent from the Outlands, arrives in Alphaville on a special mission – to kill the dangerous scientist Professor von Braun and destroy his creation, an all-seeing, all-controlling computer named Alpha-60. Passing himself off as a journalist named Ivan Johnson, Caution finds himself in a severely totalitarian world where all thoughts are closely monitored and any show of emotion is a capital offence. He gains the confidence of the professor’s attractive daughter Natasha, with whose help he succeeds in gaining admission to Alpha-60’s inner sanctum. It is here that the secret agent learns the terrible truth about Von Braun. The professor is convinced that all of the Outside Worlds are a threat to Alphaville and must be destroyed…
