Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Award-winning documentary shot in Toronto, Trinidad and India following the remarkable journey through time and space of this iconic receipe, lining colonialism, migration and the globalisation of tastes.

From the home fires of India on the plains around the Ganges dal puri travelled with indentured workers to southern Caribbean colonies of the British and Dutch Empires, to Trinidad, though to the USA changing ingredients and identity along the way. A testament to the power of sound, smell and taste to evoke memories.
