ABOUT THE FILM

Discover the culinary culture of Cuba beyond rice & beans in this enlightening journey with Asori Soto, founder of the Cuban Independent Film Movement, who ventures into regions so remote they are accessible only on horseback, by raft or by swimming. Meet adaptable and creative Cubans – such as an artist turned restaurateur and a nuclear physicist turned fisherman – creating mouthwatering meals using coconut milk, cacao, lobster and river shrimp. Capturing the authentic flavours of a complicated country, this delicious film provides historical and sociological context, exploring how political upheaval affects food, from fluctuating resources to industrial influences to the rise of international tourism.
