Description - Reel Food by Anne L. Bower
Reel Food is the first book devoted to food as a key element of film, featuring original essays by major food studies scholars, including Carole Counihan and Michael Ashkenazi. This collection reads various films through their uses of food - from major 'food films' like Babette's Feast and Big Night to less obvious choices including The Godfather trilogy and The Matrix . The contributors draw attention to the various ways in which food is employed to make meaning in film and discuss such diverse issues as racial and ethnic identities and gender and sexual politics.
