a short film by Bella Riza and Inês Neto dos Santos
𝘉𝘦𝘢𝘯𝘴, 𝘙𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘛𝘸𝘪𝘤𝘦 follows tales, histories, memories and recipes tied up in a bean. How many stories can a recipe tell? And who do these stories belong to?
Through the personal and historical symbolism of a bean – and, consequently, the process of growing, harvesting and cooking this seed – the film will move between the collaborators’ own memories (in all their factual/fabricated dimensions), expanding on to speak of how we carry multiple places within us, the value of tacit knowledge and the possibilities for a reciprocal language of care.
