Screening on July 17th, 21st and 26th, 2008 as part of the Premiere Brazil, 2008 Film exhibition:
Estômago (Estômago: A Gastronomic Story). 2007. Brazil. Directed by Marcos Jorge. With João Miguel, Fabiula Nascimento. In a dog-eat-dog world, Raimundo Nonato has found an alternative way to move ahead: he cooks. No matter what social strata this deceptively innocent young man inhabits, he hones his skills and sharpens his knives—and then he falls in love. Jorge’s nimble comic fable provides a smartly constructed gastronomic allegory for ambition and survival. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 111 min.
