Food on Film studies the politics and aesthetics of food production and presentation, nourishment, and consumption across a variety of Asian screen cultures and political-economic contexts. We will 'consume' classics of the food film such as Eat, Drink, Man, Woman, analyze the Mokbang phenomenon of commercial on-screen eating as well as consider documentaries about the food industries. What has cooking, eating, consuming, nourishing, mass-producing, or refusing food come to mean in the globalized, neoliberal economies and mobile societies of South, Southeast, and East Asia?
