Saturday, October 12, 3:15pm
Canyon Theater, Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder

Filmmaker: Tomas L. Brickhill | 2017, Zimbabwe, English, 116 min | Speaker: Professor Douglas Mpondi

A romantic comedy from Zimbabwe, Cook Off follows the journey of Anesu, a down-on-her-luck single mother from Harare’s Budiriro township who becomes a national sensation after she qualifies for Zimbabwe’s top reality TV cooking show, but then finds herself out of her depth competing against professional chefs.

Produced on a budget of less than $8,000, it used the set of Zimbabwe’s real-life Battle of the Chefs television show. The production persevered through power and water shortages, riots, and police harassment, and ultimately delivers an experience that vastly outweigh its modest budget.

$13 General Admission ($12 Students/Seniors) – Buy Tickets
