    Imaginary feasts - A film by Anne Georget


    Imaginary feasts explore the most amazing documents: notebooks filled with cooking recipes written by prisoners and deportees in Nazi concentration camps, in the Soviet Gulag and in Japanese war camps.

    Philosophers, historians, psychoanalysts, neurologists, etc. analyze and try to understand what those extraordinary ’imaginary feasts' written in the heart of the concentration system-meant.

    Food for body, food for soul?

    What do they tell us about our human condition?


    Documentary, Anne Georget, France / Belgium, 70 mn, Octobre Production, 2014.
