About the Film:

Directed by Monika Treut, Germany/Taiwan, 2012 83 mins.
Amis, English, Haka, Mandarin, Taiwanese with English subtitles.

This sumptuous exploration of Taiwan’s rich culinary traditions and unique mix of cultures, highlighting the deep and universal connection between culture and cuisine. Director Monika Treut covers Taipei’s legendary night markets, the hearty cuisine of the Hakka, the seafood specialties of the Ami indigenous tribe, and the efforts of Taiwan’s young environmental movement to create a sustainable food system.

“If one were to use the term ‘food spa,’ as opposed to the obscene-sounding ‘food porn,’ it would apply to The Raw and the Cooked,” writes Maggie Lee in Variety.

Official Selection: Berlin, Vancouver, Hawaii and Hong Kong International Film Festivals
