Event Description

Come to La Unit one Friday a month to have a memorable and unique film experience. We will be waiting for you with delicious food matching the country of the film, refreshing drinks, and delicious popcorn on the house to enjoy a cinematic experience in the heart of Battersea.

This October 20th come see “Neruda”, a Golden Globe-nominated biographical drama about Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. Neruda (Luis Gnecco) speaks out against the communist government of Gabriel Gonzáles Videla and a warrant is issued for his arrest. He goes into hiding, but continues to taunt his pursuer, Chief of the Investigations Police of Chile, Oscar Peluchonneau (Gael García Bernal). Experience this thrilling drama based in 1940s Chile, and the chase between Neruda and the police.

We will enjoy a delicious Chilean food platter before the film in our beautiful garden area. Please specify if you are vegetarian when ordering so we can cater to your needs.

– Doors open 7pm
– Chilean platter will be served between 7-8pm

Twelve years ago I left my home country, Costa Rica, to study a Masters Degree in Denmark. It was in Copenhagen that I discovered my passion for teaching my mother tongue. I put ads all over the city and started to teach Spanish as a way to support my studies. I kept teaching after my master ended, and continued to do so in the countries and cities where I lived: Boston, Stockholm and now London. In Boston, I joined The Graduate School of Education at Harvard University to strengthen my knowledge about effective teaching and learning, and here in London I complemented these studies with a graduate course from Goldsmiths University and Instituto Cervantes. I love film, literature and writing. I have short stories published both in Spanish and English.
