BOILING POINT d. Philip Barantini, 2021 + Q&A with producers Bart Ruspoli & Hester Ruoff presented by Wimbledon Film Club at Curzon Wimbledon (31 MAY 20:30).

“It’s the busiest night of the year at a trendy London restaurant, and disaster is looming. The pressure rises, as the charismatic head chef scrambles to salvage the situation. Shot in one take, Philip Barantini’s low-budget drama is a relentlessly immersive experience for the audience as well as the entire team.”
