Our quarterly Food and Film series continues this fall with a tasty sampling menu of short films from around the world. Whether preparing a meal or enjoying it around a table, the culinary experience can subsume the political, cultural and sensuous sides of being all in a single bite. Each film in this program illuminates different facets of our relationship with food and each other from a variety of vantage points. As always, this program was curated with the close collaboration of legendary Bay Area chef and restaurateur Alice Waters, co-founder, with film producer Paul Aratow, of the award-winning Chez Panisse in 1971. The UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum are thrilled to partner with Waters for a weekend of films that explore how movies from around the world have represented food and food production. The screening will begin with an introduction by Waters and can be paired with a special dinner inspired by the selections at Lulu restaurant at the Hammer Museum, Waters’ latest culinary celebration.
