Description

Festins Imaginaires by the French documentary filmmaker Anne Georget premiered at the Culinary Cinemas series of the Berlin film festival in 2015. This was proof that eating and cooking could create a bond even in its virtual form as people talked about food but could also invigorate and nourish even in its absence. The 70 minutes documentary is about a quiet revolt. The starving women dream up a communal kitchen and are bold enough to write it down.
