Short Cuts (15*)

Eat The Screen

Still from Short Cuts

Around the world in eight short food documentaries. 

Curated with a curious foodie audience in mind, this programme brings together food stories from Mali, Canada, China and beyond.  

Meet the latest intake at the Gansu Dingle Noodle School in Lanzhou, China, where students learn the art and business of making hand-pulled noodles. Follow people hunting for snails, foraging mushrooms, tapping maple trees for their syrup, and setting up a roadside chicken rotisserie. Hear from the men on the meat-packing line at a plant in Jeromesville, Ohio, about how they situate their labour in their own minds, and bodies.  

These films and more present a kind of constellation of ideas about what food is, or means: a cultural inheritance, craft, a job, a path out of the lowest rungs of society to a more stable future.
