The Labor of Lunch
ABOUT LUNCH LOVE COMMUNITY
An online documentary project offering shareable films, community engagement, and creative resources to inspire change in the way kids eat.
Food and pleasure head the menu in the 65th Berlinale’s Culinary Cinema program – and Flamin’ Hot, by Helen DeMichiel and Sophie Constantinou, is a featured dish. On Sunday, Feb. 15, the film will make its international debut as part of Berlinale’s Youth Food Day celebration.
Feeding the Body Politic, another documentary in the Lunch Love Community transmedia co-production between Citizen Film & director/producer DeMichiel, opened the festival earlier this week. The savory short features 2015 Berlinale Kamera honoree Alice Waters, whose vision started Berkeley Unified School District’s free, universal and delicious organic lunch program. The screening preceded a feature-length documentary, discussion with Waters, and dinner lovingly prepared by a top chef.
