Himself he cooks

Sosialantropologisk institutt og Universitetsbibliotek samarbeider om å vise etnografisk film på biblioteket. Dette er dokumentarer som også har allmenn interesse, og filmvisningene er åpne for alle!

Filmseriens fokus dette semesteret er: "The traveling Object. How does objects from different parts of the world reveal why and how they matter to the people around them?"

Onsdag 4.10 kl. 18.00: Himself He Cooks (India/Belgium 2011)

Regissører: Valérie Berteau og Philippe Witjes

Tons of colourful vegetables and rice, giant cooking-pots, anonymous volunteers moving in unison to feed the visitors: we observe a “langar”, the Sikh tradition of a common canteen where all are served for free regardless of their background. Set in the Golden Temple of Amritsar, a prominent place of Sikh worship, this beautiful, wordless film captures the spontaneous choreography of hundreds of people preparing 50’000 free meals a day to reveal the unique face of this sacred place. Himself He Cooks is at once a striking visual essay, offering insights into the meaning of charity and philanthropy, and a profound meditation on food as the nexus of culture, nature, and human necessity.

Uglebo og U1 veksler på å ha pop up-bar med salg av forfriskninger. Filmkveldene er åpne for alle, og helt gratis!

Filmene blir vist i HumSam-biblioteket i Georg Sverdrups hus (Universitetsbiblioteket). Det vil bli skiltet godt utenfor og i biblioteket hver gang.
