Q+A event with WINE tasting

An unlikely team of Zimbabwean refugees turned sommeliers shake up the international wine establishment when they compete in the World Wine Tasting Championships. BLIND AMBITION is an inspiring underdog story for the ages.

Having escaped starvation and tyranny in their homeland of Zimbabwe, four refugees have conquered the odds to become South Africa's top sommeliers. Driven by relentless optimism, a

passion for their craft and unshakeable national pride, they form Zimbabwe’s first ever wine tasting team and set their sights on the coveted title of ‘World Wine Tasting Champions’. From the

moment they arrive in France to compete, this team of mavericks turns an establishment of privilege and tradition on its head. A truly uplifting documentary that celebrates just how irrepressible the human spirit can be.

An uplifting story of hope, courage and determination, BLIND AMBITION is the “Cool Runnings” of the wine world.

This screening will be followed by a live Q+A with 3 of the protagonists + the 2 directors recently.

There's also a mini wine tasting included with your ticket, with a few sustainable South African wines provided by Bottles and Jars, also 10% discount on bottles from the tasted wines.
