Feeding humans and non-humans in Theravada Buddhism

Project Details


The Buddhist cosmology of the Pali texts comprises 31 realms reaching from beings in hell at the bottom of the scale to the gods of the formless realms with humans somewhere in the middle. In practice, however, the relationship between humans and non-humans in Southeast Asia finds its expression more often than not by way of food offerings or feasts, which are prepared in the still largely female domain of the kitchens. This project explores the relationship in a series of mini documentaries in mixed medium (film, stills, sounds) to be combined into a film and an accompanying article.
