Cinema seems to be about vision and sound. We watch a story, told by the projector and the dolby surround system. But cinema can also
distance itself from the plot and become more of a total experience,
stimulating senses like taste, touch and smell. How can it be that we almost feel or smell certain movies? It promises to be a stimulating evening!
