“Think of the movies you’ve seen that have made you soooo hungry: Babette’s Feast, Big Night, Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Before them all came Tampopo, Juzo Itami’s 1985 comedy about all the ways food activates our senses and inflames our desires. A surprise art-house hit after a Roger Ebert rave brought it to the attention of American audiences, Tampopo still stands up 30 years later as a weird, mouthwatering masterpiece” (Dan Kois for Slate Magazine).
- Thursday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. The Food on Film Series presents its second free showing of the year: Bugs: Will Eating Insects Save Our Earth? . The film is free and open to the public at the Athena Cinema.“Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists, and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. It would seem that insects are the new superfood that will fix all our problems of global food security.” Trailer
