Food Film Series

CMPL 255H, "The Feast in Philosophy, Film and Fiction" is offering a Food Film Series to accompany the class this Spring semester, 2015.  The feast or banquet functions as a strong symbol in most global communities.  Food and feasting often defines community by establishing a connection between those who eat, what they eat and how they eat: as such it shapes national and cultural identities.  The multiple purposes and nuances of food also make it a rich theme in literature, film, and the visual arts.  The food and banquet film has recently become a genre unto itself, and the outpouring of food films is helpful in understanding cross-cultural differences in the social and philosophical understandings of eating and feasting.  

 

 

The fIlm series, cosponsored by the Comparative Literature Program, CLOUD, and the Honors Program, is open to all.  Screenings will begin with a short introduction by a faculty member.  The series will run on Monday evenings throughout the semester, 6:30 pm-9 pm. in Graham Memorial 038.  Please see the poster below for additional information and a complete list of films.  Please contact Professor Inger Brodey brodey@email.unc.edu with any questions.
