Culinary Cinema - Febiofest

evening of film and dining

For the sixth year in a row, the Prague International Film Festival – Febiofest features a special section called Culinary Cinema, which combines the viewing of the latest films with a unique dining experience. The founder of the project are the former Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick and curator Thomas Struck. Kosslick has now become a programme consultant for Febiofest IFFP as well as a patron of its Culinary Cinema evening.

Maintaining the tradition, Culinary Cinema will offer one special menu put together by renowned master chef Ondřej Koráb. The screenings of Le Chocolat de H. will take place on Sunday 20 November at the Cinema City Slovanský dům multiplex, while four-course menu inspired by the film, paired with a special selection of wines, will be served at the Empire Hall.

As always, the culinary evenings will be hosted by presenter Jolana Voldánová.

Le Chocolat de H

Directed: Takashi Watanabe
Japan, 2019, 84 min

Artisan chocolate making as an artistic expression similar to poetry or music – at least when speaking about the sweet treats created by Japanese confectioner Hironobu Tsujiguchi. The five-time winner of the prestigious Parisian chocolate festival Salon du Chocolat would like to win the award again with his culinary art based on Japanese traditions. This lyrical documentary portrait embarks on a journey in quest of a unique sweet taste, flavoured by rice flour and tea leaves.

Since 2003, Takashi Watanabe has been working for TV Asahi Productions. He has conducted interviews for television news programmes with more than a hundred writers, politicians and businessmen. The unique documentary Le Chocolat de H is his feature debut.
