Origins of a Meal, dir. Luc Moullet, France 1978, 117 min., French with English subtitles


French New Wave filmmaker Luc Moullet goes up the food chain to investigate the origins of his meal. Tracking three basic food items, bananas, eggs and tuna, his research leads him to various locations between France, Ecuador and Senegal in order to know where they really come from and what their commerce implies. 

The film will be presented in a new restoration, screened for the first time in the UK.

The screening will be followed by a panel with Missy Flynn (Founder of Rita’s Dining) and Imogen Kwok, hosted by Jago Rackham (Ecstasy Cookbook).
