Life on the Douro: Screening in San Francisco and Los Angeles

Quick update on the documentary by Zev Robinson called, “Life on the Douro“. For those of you who’ve either supported or followed Zev, you might be interested to know that his film will be screened in both Los Angeles and San Francisco on November 15th and 17th, followed by a Port tasting.

Doors open at 6 PM, the film will start at 6:30, followed by a Q&A and a wine tasting presented by Oscar Quevedo, a port producer, and Roy Hersh, one of the world’s leading experts of Port and Douro wines and organizer of tours of the region. According to Zev, both played crucial roles in the making of the film, including a special tour organized by Roy for the film, which was created over a 15 month period, including 45 days of filming in the region.

If you have an opportunity, take a moment to attend the screening. Having seen the film, we promise you that you’ll fall in love with the characters as much as we have!

Just before that, on Saturday, November 12, Life on the Douro will be showing at the Toronto International Portuguese Film Festival

and the following Saturday, November 19, at Paso Robles Film Festival (exact time TBA)

I’ll be attending the Paso Robles Film Festival with Roy Hersh, but unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to Toronto.


Looking ahead, there will be events in Cologne on December 4, in Fontainebleau on December 7, and more are being arranged.

Directing this film has been one of the great experiences of my life, the Douro is one of the wonders of the world that should be seen at least once in a lifetime, and Portugal is a country that deserves to be much better known, and hopefully the film will make a small contribution in helping it get what it deserves.
