Bertha DocHouse is London’s dedicated documentary cinema boasting an exciting mix of screenings, special events and Q&As every week. This exclusive preview features a film which recently premiered at the BFI London Film Festival. From 1996 to 2001 photography was banned in Afghanistan. Now, after decades of war and an oppressive Taliban regime, the Afghan media must overcome the challenges of building a free press in a country left to stand on its own. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with colour and character, ‘Frame by Frame’ follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape – reframing Afghanistan for the world, and for the Afghans themselves. This screening takes place on the evening of Monday November 9.

The Club Zetter isn’t your usual venue. An attempt to replace fêted noughties restaurant Bistrot Bruno Loubet with something that’s a members-only ‘co-working space’ by day and a smart, design-conscious bar by night, it’s fun enough that you can overlook your party of two doubling the number of patrons (and supplying the only guests not drinking while hunched over a MacBook). The decor’s all maximal, ’60s kitsch – nary a seat not clad in velvet, cutesy electro-swing bubbling from the speakers, orangey mood lighting – like a hotel lobby done up as Austin Powers’ shag pad. The booze is good: small range of craft beers on tap, extensive wine list (including a number on tap). There’s a menu of small plates: think fat pink-black king prawns swimming in a chickpea-studded lake of oily jus, big squishy portion of pulled pork and anisey-red cabbage slaw in a brioche bun. And an unbelievably delicious baked camembert that’s so ripe it’s almost decomposing (in a good way). All in all: a cute, upmarket bar. Or it would be, if it weren’t so dead that you could hear a pin drop. Only one solution, then: go with loads of friends.
Venue says: “The Happiest Hour is from 6-7pm! Enjoy two-for-one on cocktails and beers daily.”
