The 57th annual SF Film Festival begins tomorrow…enjoy these films that have something to do with art or food. All photos courtesy sffs.org.
Art and Craft
a documentary centering on the life and mental illness of a philanthropic art forger
Cesar’s Last Fast
the story of Cesar Chavez centered around his 1988 fast, the final of many taken to highlight the rights of his fellow farm workers
improvised around a storyline, four couples attend a dinner party when a comet passes by and things get weird
a cautionary documentary that follows the obesity crisis and its connection to federal dietary guidelines
about our very own Bay Bridge…..counts as art in my book
The Last Season
documentary about the (mostly) southeast Asian immigrants who make up the seasonal collection of mushroom hunters in Chemult, Oregon
Soul Food Stories
a mixed bag of Muslim, Christian, Catholic and atheist communists living together in Satovcha, Bulgaria come together over their shared love of food (reminds me of the boys behind the Jerusalem Cookbook…food brings us together politicians!)
more food porn from director Michael Winterbottom (The Trip) and the duo Brydon and Coogan who hilariously needle each other in the most beautiful places that you wish you were visiting!
Enjoy the festival….
