DINNER & A MOVIE
The Color of Film Collaborative, Inc. and Haley House Bakery Café will be screening:
Soul Food Junkies
A film about food traditions that are hard to change, especially when they're passed on from generation to generation. In this PBS documentary, award-winning filmmakerByron Hurt shares his journey to learn more about the African American cuisine known as soul food.
Baffled by his dad's unwillingness to change his traditional soul food diet in the face of a health crisis, Hurt sets out to learn more about this rich culinary tradition and its relevance to black cultural identity. He discovers that the love affair that his dad and his community have with soul food is deep-rooted, complex, and in some tragic cases, deadly.
Through candid interviews with soul food cooks, historians, and scholars, as well as doctors, family members, and everyday people, Soul Food Junkiesblends history, humor, and heartwarming stories to place this culinary tradition under the microscope. Both the consequences and the benefits of soul food are carefully addressed. So too is the issue of low access to quality food in black communities, which makes it difficult for some black people to eat healthy. In the end, Hurt determines whether or not black people are addicted to this food tradition that has its origins in West Africa and the black south, yet is loved all over the world.
Then we have dedicated a portion of the talk back to the audience for you to share your food stories after all the most important part of filmmaking...........the story.
