Food is nourishment, food is pleasure, food is comfort — and food is also history, culture and memory. This delectable documentary from Miami artist and filmmaker Dudley Alexis explores the depths of significance to be digested in joumou, a traditional pumpkin-based soup consumed in Alexis' native Haiti every Haitian Independence Day, which also happens to be New Year's Day. The ritual preparation of joumou is an emblem of freedom for Haitians, redolent of Revolutionary ideals, emancipation and victory. Join Alexis on this personal journey as he returns to Haiti to investigates joumou, its meanings — and its culinary delights. Official Selection, 2017 Miami and Santa Barbara film festivals.

In English, Haitian Creole and French with English subtitles
