The Meal

Presenting our very special film, The Meal. 

The dining table is a place of connection, where stories are told and meals are shared. It is a space to nurture and sustain lives and cultures. In The Meal, four diners who have unique connections with bread share a meal over pão, talking about bread and its intimate connect with Goa.
