“A fascinating reflection from a hidden Japan, between Eros and Love, with
extraordinary characters and stories… nights in Love Hotel are like dreams….”
Darkside Cinema

“The explicitly sexual, wholly emotional and tantalising Love Hotel….” Indiewire USA

In a highly structured and conservative society, people need release, somewhere they can unlock their desires and not be judged. The Angelo is such a place; it’s one of 37,000 Love Hotels in Japan visited by 2.8million people a day. An ancient Japanese tradition, the hotels exist for people to escape the traditional structure of their daily life and explore their fantasies or just find some privacy. But the Love Hotels are under threat. With an increasingly conformist society the government is cracking down on the industry and many of the hotels face closure.

With unprecedented access to the Angelo’s staff and guests Love Hotel is an extraordinary portrait of what at first seems a quirk in Japanese society but by the end seems like a vital element.

Following the screening we will have a Q&A with Directors Phil Cox and Hikaru Toda

Authentic Cuban rum Havana Club is teaming up with legendary Soho restaurant Kettner’s to launch ‘Nothing Compares to Havana’ – a journey through the story and production of Havana Club, Cuban cocktails and Cuban Music. This immersive experience will run for a limited period only – from the 10th – 13th September.

Spread over the entire second floor of the renowned London restaurant; this informative and fun adventure will allow rum enthusiasts and novices alike to enjoy and learn more about Havana Club. There will also be an opportunity to learn about how the rum is made and get a flavour for Cuban culture, along with a specially designed Cuban tasting menu, created by Kettner’s head chef Yosef Edri.

photoThe journey will start with a brief history on the origins of rum and a master class on how to make an authentic Cuban mojito. The next stage of the experience will delve into how Havana Club rum is produced and offer the chance to sample sugarcane, molasses and aguardiente; key elements illustrating the rum production process. ‘Nothing Compares to Havana’ will then finish with a Havana Club rum tasting session, led by Meimi Sanchez, International and UK Brand ambassador for Havana Club. She will pair some of the brand’s most iconic rums, such as Havana Club Selección de Maestros, one of the higher styles of Cuban rum with a selection of chocolates.

If you want to win entries just tweet your Personal Havana Club Custom Cocktail and we will pick the best. Be as imaginative as possible.
