Awara soup

| France | 1996 | 70'

The Awara Soup is a kind of stew containing all sorts of ingredients coming from the different cultures of Guyanese society. If you eat that dish on Easter, you are sure never to leave Guyana, they say. Using the cooking of this dish as a starting point, the film explores the different realities composing this French overseas region. American Indians, Europeans, Slave descendents, Laotians, Chinese, Brazilians, Surinamese, tell us how they’re bringing new flavours to the Guyanese stew of identities.
