Genesis of a Meal
(Genèse d'un repas)


genèse d'un repas

What hides behind a simple French meal? To ponder this question, Luc Moullet chooses to turn the camera onto himself and his own plate. What do we find there? Tuna, omelette and bananas. Starting with the ordinary ingredients of French people’s everyday meals, Moullet launches an enquiry that touches on topics such as globalisation, the international division of labour and the rich countries’ exploitation of the Third World. In his story, these notions take on a very concrete form, revealing a system of exploitation that no one can escape: neither the director, nor us the spectators.
