Chewing the Fat: ULAM Screening & Conversation with Alexandra Cuerdo

  • Whitney Humanities Center Auditorium 53 Wall Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)

ULAM: Main Dish is the first food documentary following the rise of the Filipino food movement via chefs crossing over to the center of the American table. Described by the late food critic Jonathan Gold as “a love letter to Filipino food in America,” ULAM celebrates the power of food movements and their inextricable ties with culture and identity. 

Join us at the Whitney Humanities Center for a screening of this film, followed by a moderated conversation between ULAM director Alexandra Cuerdo and Timothy Dwight Head of College Mary Lui. Here are more event details. 

This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by the Yale Sustainable Food Program, Timothy Dwight College, the Whitney Humanities Center, KASAMA, the Asian American Cultural Center at Yale, and the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration.
