BEANS, RINSED TWICE
2021

a short film by Bella Riza and InΓͺs Neto dos Santos

π˜‰π˜¦π˜’π˜―π˜΄, π˜™π˜ͺ𝘯𝘴𝘦π˜₯ π˜›π˜Έπ˜ͺ𝘀𝘦 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.

Production LOOP Barcelona. Co-financed with funds from the Creative Europe Program and the project A-PLACE. Linking places through networked artistic practices.
