ABOUT THE FILM
"Innovative...It's a pleasure to see an affirming film on a present-day multi-cultural encounter."
Elaine Charnov, American Museum of Natural History
"A delightfully evocative film... Like all good art, Awara Soup is not polemic. It demonstrates rather than dictates the pleasures of multi-cultural social life."
Paul Stoller, Film Review Editor, The American Anthropologist
"An excellent film for stimulating discussion about important issues of (trans-) national identity and pluriethnic world-in-the-making that go way beyond most American platitudes about multiculturalism."
Lucien Taylor, University of California, Berkeley
"Whimsical rather than sentimental, socially incisive rather than righteous, respectful rather than idealizing - it hits the right note...A frank and hopeful assessment of a multi-ethnic society."
