Amir Firestone ‘17 will screen a documentary in which he participated while working with refugees in Germany.
The documentary “The Taste of Home” tells the story of the German project Kitchen on the Run, a mobile kitchen and “integration incubator” that traveled through Europe in 2016 to organize cooking events with refugees and locals at each location (Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden) with the intention of creating personal encounters at eye-level. The film captures the experiences of the project organizers, the challenges they faced when they came to each new location and what they learned, and the stories of the refugees who cooked in the container kitchen. In the process, the film juxtaposes the stories of the project organizers and of the refugees they meet in their struggles of acclimating to a new country and its social and cultural environment.
