About Cuban Food Stories:
Cuba might not have the reputation of a food lover’s paradise. But the island is actually a culinary heaven of tastes hidden just below the surface of tourist trap restaurants. Cuban Food Stories brings out this side of Cuba, as ex-pat Asori Soto travels to a range of cities, towns and villages to discover local specialties that will make your mouth water. The film also shows how Cuba is rapidly changing, and gives great insight into its history, culture, traditions, and ways of life. A film that will inspire you to visit – or revisit – this Caribbean island.
Asori Soto (b. 1980) is a Cuban producer and director currently based in New York. He is the founder of the Cuban Independent Film Movement, and was awarded Best Narrative Director at the Havana New Directors Film Festival. Cuban Food Stories is a part of a documentary series, “Food Stories”, that delves into the relationship between culinary traditions and cultural heritage.
