Perhaps as you read this you may be wondering what the three Argentinean films (plus one American film about soccer) have to do with a blog about Argentinean recipes.
I mentioned in my previous post that I did some work for the Starz Denver Film Festival this year, screening films and writing program notes. But beyond that, I find that watching films are a wonderful way to learn about culture, language and even the thoughts and mannerisms of a country's people. I was lucky enough to get to watch a number of wonderful independent films this fall, so I urge you, even if you don't reside in Denver, to check out the lineup on the SDFF's website. (And that goes for films from any culture--the festival's featured country this year is Iran, which has produced some unforgettable entries that are included in this year's festival!)
