Bites: A Taste of Asian Cinema

1 - 31 March 2021
In Partnership with MUBI

The Bagri Foundation is pleased to announce a new online curated programme of Asian films from the MUBI UK Archive. Bites takes food as a key motif for storytelling and as a symbol across the narrative journey, and is accompanied by a series of inspired recipes.

With films from Turkey, Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia, China, India and  South Korea, the series explores the inextricable relationship between human stories and food, where the nourishment of the body is indissoluble from the one of the soul.

Find the full playlist and recipes here.
