    Under the supervision of legendary cult director Percy Adlon (Rosalee Goes Shopping, Salmonberries), the award-winning, international Box Office success BAGDAD CAFÉ celebrates the possibilities of a uniquely harmonious sense of community.

    Driving through the Mojave Desert somewhere between Las Vegas and Disneyland, Jasmin (Marianne Sägebrecht) strikes out on her own following a row with her husband. Trudging down the highway, she catches the attention of Brenda (CCH Pounder, The Shield), the irascible proprietor of the Bagdad Café. So begins a hilarious and touching account of these two women of different cultures, joined together in the middle of desolation in an oasis of friendship.

    Also featuring Academy Award® winner Jack Palance (City Slickers, Shane) BAGDAD CAFE is a timely reminder that cultures can clash and combine in a positive and playful way. An absolute ‘must-own’ for fans of indie cinema, the Oscar-nominated film inspired a hit TV series starring Whoopi Goldberg and is now firmly considered a cult favourite.
