The Culinary Cinema examines the garden, looking at it both as a place and a metaphor. For there's an important parallel between film and gardens. The garden is an in-between space, the bridge between natural wilderness and the artificiality of houses and streets.
Film too is made of in-between spaces and individual frames. Every single frame lets light through and advances in a specific order and speed. The inertia of human perception turns these single frames into motion sequences, which our minds quickly process into stories. A single frame is like a garden patch in a pool of sunlight.
