Garage Screen: Eat Film Festival


Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and Eat Film Festival of documentary films dedicated to gastronomic culture have prepared a special program for Garage Screen summer cinema.

This year’s edition of the festival focuses on the theme of conscious food consumption. According to forecasts, by the end of this century the population of the planet will increase by one and a half times, while the resources will be reduced by half, meaning alternative sources of food have to be discovered, and people should start thinking about what and how they eat, and how much food waste they produce.

The program will include the screening of Jiro Dreams of Sushi devoted to the almost 90-year-old Jiro Ono whose tiny Tokyo-based ten-seat sushi bar boasts three Michelin stars and an impressive list of famous guests. The secret of his success is samurai self-denial. Since 1951, he has done the same job daily, and with each day aims to do it better. Accompanying the screening will be a discussion on the traditions of Japanese cuisine involving an Eat Film Festival special guest—journalist, feminist, and Japan’s first female sushi chef Reiko Yuyama. For the past ten years, Yuyama-san has been touring the world with her sushi performance, bringing elements of show and burlesque into classic mastery. Joining the talk will be Gennady Yosefavichus, journalist and teacher at Novikov School.

Another film—director Maya Gallus’s The Heat! A Kitchen (R)evolution—tells the stories of female chefs at some of the top gastronomic venues of New York and Toronto. This movie is a frank conversation about gender problems penetrating the restaurant industry, where the idea that being a chef is a man’s prerogative remains a strong stereotype. Introducing the movie will be one of its protagonists, founder of Parabere Forum which brings together female chefs from across the globe, journalist, trend hunter, lecturer, and curator Maria Canabal.


Eat Film Festival is the first Russian festival of documentary pictures about gastronomic culture, founded by Kirill Sorokin and Alyona Bocharova, the creators of Beat Film Festival—an international festival of documentary films and new culture, together with the restaurateur Ekaterina Drozdova, co-author of the projects Simple Things, Khachapuri, Ragout, and former partner at Novikov School.
