Life on the Douro in California and Toronto

It has arrived the moment to share with you (at least to some of) the documentary Life on the Douro. I have been talking about it several times during the last year. Almost every single visit that Zev Robinson, its father, was making to the Douro was mentioned here. After the premiere in the Douro Film Harvest last September, now it is time to go abroad, first to Canada and US in November, and then to Europe in December.

In the Americas Life on the Douro will be screening on Saturday, November 12, at the Toronto International Portuguese Film Festival

Few days later, Zev’s film will be showing in Los Angeles and San Francisco on November 15 and 17, followed by a tasting of Port and still wines produced by a handful of producers from the region. Doors open at 6 PM and the film will start at 6:30, followed by a Q&A, and a wine tasting presented by Roy Hersh of and me. I hope to see there some of you there, at least those who read us from the Pacific cost.

The venues are:

Chaplin Theater and Raleigh Cafe,
Raleigh Studios
5300 Melrose Avenue
Los Angeles CA 90038

Tickets are $32.00 and can be purchased here –

For we all to better know Zev Robinson, I have put on the top an interview made by Luiz Alberto and Roy Hersh.
