Imaginary Feasts
Anne Georget
2014 - 70 min - HD - France

Philosophers, historians, psychoanalysts and neurologists analyze and explore the most amazing documents: notebooks filled with cooking recipes, written by prisoners and deportees in Nazi concentration camps, in the Gulag and in Japanese war camps. As they study them, they also try to understand what those extraordinary ''imaginary banquets'' written in the heart of the concentration system-meant. Food for body, food for soul? What do they tell us about our human condition? The imperative need to gather together, to share, to plan our future? That's for sure. The researchers will enable us, though, to refine these primary intuitions.
