Imaginary Feasts (Festins Imaginaires)

Imaginary Feasts

In the Nazi concentration camps, in Soviet Gulags, in Japanese war camps, prisoners would write hundreds of cooking recipes. These starving inmates who would kill for a piece of bread, painstakingly wrote these recipes at great personal risk. These recipes became a universal act of resistance, and one that has never been studied before.

This documentary explores extraordinary moments in history, and the power of imaginary feasts to feed the soul.
