With the buzz of the carnival outside, groups dancing and crowds smiling, we began our own celebration inside The Gate cinema in Notting Hill.
On August 31st, we had our World Premiere! Where we were joined by numerous Paleo bloggers, friends and some of our cast and crew. As the attendees arrived, the drinks began to flow (a big thank you to Jameson!) Although the foyer was small, the room began to fill and became crowded as more and more appeared. As you can see we were having a great time!
The time had come. We made our way into the huge cinema theatre, decked with red velvet seats, which held the screen behind the classic red curtain. All we needed now was an usher to hand out popcorn and ice cream. Everyone had taken there seats and the film was about to begin.
Unfortunately despite testing, we did have a few technical problems with the projection, over-exposure and shown at a different aspect ratio leaving some of the subtitles to be cut off, but the film was enjoyed all the same. After a lengthy applause, we kicked off our Q&A. Along with the Director and Co-producer, Caroleen Moise Reimann and Co-producer Tjard Reimann, the cast of the film also took to the stage, Irena Macri, Darryl Edwards and Mark & Pete Davis. Questions about the challenges, benefits and advice towards Paleo brought up a great discussion and why it is important for people to watch this documentary.
Here’s what people thought of the film:
“A truly superb documentary film. I absolutely loved it.” Richard Baggs, Primal Pantry
“A superb film.” Jill Gardner, Hate It Change It
“Excellent documentary detailing how a back-to-basic approach to health can holistically bring you back in tune against the current stem of epidemic health problems.” Jerry Dhillon, Evolution in Fitness
We would like to thank everyone who came to the premiere and to OurScreen and The Gate cinema that made it all possible. We all had a great night and was a good first-run of the film. We can’t wait to show the film to the rest of the world!
