Kitchen's Orchestra

This one-minute film by Tina Krüger gives a powerful insight in the beauty and musicality of every-day cooking actions. The food being prepared is a traditional mozambican dish called Makhofu, which inspired the making of this film by it's unique sounds and rythms. The film aims to be a perspective-change to the way we usually perceive the things we do while preparing our food.
