This showcase will undeniably confirm that there really is nothing more indulgent than food on film. Films that divulge a truly workable pie recipe – composed of hair; the gleeful gluttony of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches; the most sensational Kubrick parody concocted with Chinese food and of course the charming personalities behind the counter.  Works include Tom Palazzolo’s Jerry’s (1976), Sam Kessler’s Rib’s (1980), Gary Weimberg’s $20.01: A Chinese Food Odyssey (1979), Tom Brozovich’s Hair Pie (1981), David Grotenstein’s Catch of the Day (1983), and Nick Manning’s Hot Bagels (1979).  Delight your senses with these rich and flavorful cinematic experiences.  “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.” - Sophia Loren.
