Film Screening — Duration: 8 mins

On a mission to catch the smell of rain and fresh-cut grass, culinary artist Joseba Cruz is constantly looking for the most that nature has to offer. Bringing the woods to a plate is his attempt at connecting to the place where he is. Raised by his grandparents and great-grandparents, Cruz attributes his career to his French cousin Oliver, a fly-fishing champion who taught him the physical and mental attrition of dedicating oneself to the earth. Leaving behind three-star restaurants, Cruz competes with himself to make Michelin one-star food from his mobile creation space using gas-fuelled camp stoves and a zest for fresh like no other.
