Two special screenings of award-winning documentaries will be held at La Boheme - a restaurant located near Double Six in the Seminyak area of Bali in July.
The Hole in The Wall
On Wednesday, July 9th Italian Director Gil Rossellini's The Hole in the Wall will be shown.
This compelling film documents the bold experiment of an Indian computer scientist, Dr. Sugata Mitra, who literally knocked a hole in the wall of his modern office building situated next door to a New Delhi slum. Installing a computer in the hole he waited and watched to see what would happen when India's poorest of poor were suddenly face to face with modern computer technology. Gradually, local children began to manipulate the controls of the high-speed computer with many discovering on their own how to surf the Web.
Later, when one of the boys was asked to define the Internet he replied, "That with which you can do anything."
The documentary shows the effects of bringing computers to India's inter-city slums, to young women in a country where only one-third of all females are literate, and to remote fishing villages.
The film will be shown on Wednesday, July 9th after a sunset dinner of Seviche and Bouillabaisse prepared by Chef Mimi Coutelier with doors opening at 6 p.m..
