This week we take a closer look at food culture in NYC as we take a look at the top 10 web series from the 7th Annual New Media Film Festival.
1 Minute Meal
Director: James Boo
Running time: 1:05
Synopsis: New York is home to glamorous restaurants and exalted chefs, but behind this scene is a world of food that is more culture than concept. 1 Minute Meal is an award-winning micro-documentary series about that world, where cooks and diners do whatever they can to keep their own piece of the city alive.
The episode we screened was “Ganesha’s Favorite” covering Ganesh Chaturthi, a multi-day festival honoring Ganesha, celebrated deity and “remover of obstacles.”
