Do You Like Eating With Your Hands? A Summer Youth Filmmaking Workshop

Three Sundays, July 14, 21, 28: 12 – 5 pm

FREE!

Use of the hands and a traditional flatbread as utensils is common in many cultures, often holding deep meaning. The practice of eating with hands in Hindu culture translates to a spiritual level through the Pancha Bhoota, a belief in the five elements of being, triggered through one’s fingers. In the Islamic faith, it is believed to increase blessings. In Filipino culture, it’s referred to as kamayan (with hands), a symbol of pre-colonial cultural pride.

This interactive 3 session workshop focuses on the topic of eating with your hands. Using a variety of different cinema techniques, students will explore the concept of eating with your hands. For inspiration we will be showing works: Leche by Naomi Uman, the food fight scene in Daisies, Zina Saro-Wiwa’s table manners, and the work-in-progress video of Eva Aguila.

The final videos made in class will be screened October 2019 at Reseda Park.

Instructors: Eva Aguila with assistance from Eliza Jimenez and Amber Lee.

Workshop open to youth ages 12 – 19 All instruction, materials and equipment provided free of charge by EPFC. Class limited to 10 participants; students must be able to attend all three sessions.

 

Bookings are closed for this event.
