The European Culinary Season continues tonight, Wednesday, June 25, 2014 (8:30pm), at the Alliance Française de Manille (AFM) Ciné-Club with the screening of Taste The Waste, a documentary film by Valentin Thurn in original version with English subtitles.

Entrance is free!

Affluent societies live in abundance: Around half of all foodstuffs end up in the rubbish, mostly even before they’ve gone to the consumer. The public is only slowly becoming aware of the extent of this misuse. Taste The Waste examines the reasons for this waste and looks into the consequences it has on the feeding of 7 billion people, as well as its impact on the changing climate. The documentary was filmed in Europe, Africa, Asia and the USA. Should anyone have dared hope that a single film could change the awareness of its viewers, Valentin Thurn’s work could very well fulfil this wish.


Le film pointe la responsabilité non seulement des industriels de l’alimentation ou des grandes surfaces, mais de chacun d’entre nous, et comment ce système prolonge une forme de colonisation rampante : l’accaparement des terres des pays du sud ou la production sur des terres arables de denrées qui ne concernent que les pays riches, aux exigences démesurées.
