This documentary goes through the northern shore of Peru, Amazonia, and Lima, and explores the historical and sociopolitical aspects of ceviche, a dish from Peru that dates back to pre-Columbian times.
A trademark dish for a country that managed to turn its gastronomy into something of value and a cultural and touristic destination. It’s a trend that stretches to restaurants and food production, from architects designing places and small fishermen to Gastón Acurio, its most famous promoter, almost a politician in a permanent campaign for food. Ceviche as a popular street meal. Its history. Its preparation explained and showed in camera in a simple manner that in just a few minutes expresses the knowledge of generations transmitted into this dish. This film is an ambitious and rhythmic exploration that goes through Peru seeking, asking, and showing. One of the finest –sunniest, tastiest– meanings you can provide to the term “research documentary.” JPF
