Hate to feel like I’m just a cut-and-paste blogger, so I want to mention that I enjoyed a local screening of ‘Soul Food Junkies’. Byron Hurt, the documentary maker, came to Rhode Island and showed his film at Miriam Hospital to health care workers, and later at an event open to the public at the Cathedral of Life Christian Assembly in Olneyville.
The film is an impressive balancing act– recognizing the centrality of food as culture, family and comfort– and the pleasure it brings. Also presenting the evidence that an un-balanced diet will take years off your life.
‘Soul Food Junkies’ was selected to show on PBS, date to be announced.
This short post is a taste, a larger portion will follow.
