Cinema in Conversation:

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Programmed and sponsored by Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities

Co-sponsored by the Oak Institute for Human Rights and the Colby College Departments of Cinema Studies, Spanish, and Religious Studies.

Post-film discussion with Bowdoin Assistant Professor of Sociology Shruti Devgan!

Four families’ Thanksgivings: The African-American Williamses, the Mexican Avilas, the Jewish Seeligs, and the Vietnamese Nguyens navigate rising tensions around their respective holiday dinner tables. Director Gurinder Chadha (Bend it Like Beckham, Bride & Prejudice) “turns her attention to the divergence and unity of LA’s ethnic melting pot at Thanksgiving in this vibrant homage to family” –BBC. Estrangement, affairs, cultural assimilation, and sexuality are topics of conversation while each family prepares the traditional meal in their own unique way. Around each table, things come to a head. “‘What’s Cooking?'” provides a quartet of compelling, resonant and superbly acted tales for the price of one, plus a mouth-watering visual feast of culinary delights” –BBC.
