Event description

Description

A romantic comedy from Zimbabwe, Cook Off follows the journey of Anesu, a down-on-her-luck single mother from Harare’s Budiriro township who becomes a national sensation after she qualifies for Zimbabwe’s top reality TV cooking show, but then finds herself out of her depth competing against professional chefs.

Produced on a budget of less than $8,000, it used the set of Zimbabwe’s real-life Battle of the Chefs television show. The production persevered through power and water shortages, riots, and police harassment, and ultimately delivers an experience that vastly outweigh its modest budget.

Speaker: Professor Douglas Mpondi

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=7dqsp6yNvVE

Preceded by: What if Alfonso Cuaron made Pancakes?
