Ngo Hai Lai Yan Cheng, NL, 2018, 34’
How is the mixed food-culture formulated, produced and accepted? How do different cultural narratives and practices work to constitute food culture for individuals and groups in a multi-ethnic setting? And will the process challenge our idea about the formation of identity?
Foe Yong Hai is an art and cultural research project initiated by visual designer Fay Teo and artist Ami Tsang. Its starting point is the shared interest of Chinese cuisine and overseas Asians’ identity. Through this project, they use food as an agent, to speculate the third culture in the Netherlands. They organize food events and workshops, among other things.
The documentary Ngo Hai Lai Yan Cheng was produced as part of this initiative.
Bmore to Eat, USA/FR, 2017, 11’
Following the footsteps of Hannibal Lecter, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine where he studied to the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall where he devoured a flutist, we will stride over Baltimore through a series of random encounters.
Today, Hannibal Lecter would have been 83 years old. What is the extent of his shadow and what does it reveal about relationships?
Elisa Colette Chéradame is a film director and videographer who is doing a residency in September and early October in WORM Pirate Bay Archive. She will create a film based on archival materials and set in the archive. The film will be shown on October 4; for more information: Elisa Colette Chéradame Pirate Bay Film Residency.
The screenings are followed by a Q&A with the creators.
