This season ACRE TV is pleased to present:
September 1 – October 31, 2014
“The number I took took me and spiraling through the pickled kipper and the arugula rugalah, the babka bobbed, and my head went to cheese.”
—Ïørg Malsnitz, Lo Psychedelikateßen
A cornucopia of psychedelia, a delicate spread of the finest things, delicious and heady, sumptuous and somatic. Food films but also film foods. Cooking shows where the food narrates and the chefs are chevre. A mayonnaise malaise, half Erowid and half Martha Stewart, some things you need a half pound of, others much less.
If television delivers the people, ACRE TV delivers the Soylent Green, thinly sliced and mostly eyes and ears and brains. I stream, you stream, we all stream for mustard paintings and ketchup pairings. I’ve never seen the Food Network, but I assume it’s like this. A perfect time to watch weekly shows, to hear field recordings of fields, to tell the whole world about being a waiter for Godot.
