IMAGINARY FEASTS explores how in Nazi concentration cmaps, Soviet Gulags and Japanese prison camps, starving prisoners shared and recorded favorite meals and recipes. By examing how these objects of survival, the film shows quiet acts of incredible resistance. The film is a testament to the strength of women and men who, even in the most dire circumstances, created a unique form of resistance.
"A breathtaking metaphor. The poetic strength of the recipes is intact." - Telerama
