Slovak film wins another prize at Vienna festival

The Slovak-Czech-Austrian co-production documentary movie Cooking History (Ako sa varia dejiny) received another prize, this time the main award in the Category “Documentary” at a film festival in Vienna. Slovak movie-maker Peter Kerekes has been harvesting awards all over the world with this work: a Special Jury Award at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto, Canada, Golden Hugo from Chicago and the FIPRESCI prize from Leipzig. He received the most recent prize for “the highly unconventional approach, thanks to which the basic human process of eating has been made to boil through using testimonies and archive pictures. The result is a perverted culinary war spiced with a pinch of sarcasm”.

The Slovak-Czech-Austrian film tells a story about the influence of male and female cooks in wars. The scriptwriter and director – Kerekes in both cases – visited many war cooks in various European countries to record their stories about how to survive and how to help others survive, the SITA newswire was told.
