Weird and Random Glimpses of Food on Film
Watch What You Eat, Pray, Love
Where: Oddball Film and Video, 275 Capp (at 18th St.), 558-8112
When: Sat., Mar. 26, 8:30 p.m.
The rundown: After dinner tomorrow night, Oddball Film and Video invites you to a visual feast. Mining deep in the archives, conscience-driven filmmaker Soumyaa Kapil Behrens has hand-chosen an eclectic lineup of food-related commercials, cartoons, and other rarely viewed celluloid flotsam. Highlights include Dr. Seuss's legendary story of an elephant hatching an egg; a surreal W.C. Fields-as-starving-prospector sketch; a 1980s instructional film using a job-hunting chicken to explain the free market; and a lyrical study of the sweet potato harvest in West New Guinea.
