Q&A With Malik Amandla, ‘Food For Love’ Film
What is the inspiration behind Food For Love? What do you think is the link between food and emotions?
I was inspired by the realization that I most often bond with loved ones over food. Then I thought how powerful it must feel to be the chef creating the meal that you bond over with someone you love. And what happens if that person is no longer in your life? How does that effect your relationship with food and yourself?
Food has forever been deeply linked with love (romantic dates, lunch with friends, dinner with family). In our Food for Love film, we explore what happens when the connection between a chef and her boyfriend is severed after he betrays her.
What will the Indiegogo funds go toward?
The Indiegogo funds will go toward making a high quality film using lighting equipment, gear rentals, wardrobe, makeup, multiple locations, props, transportation, and of course food. Food is a huge component in this film, we want it to look amazing and filled with love! Once Food for Love is completed, we will submit it to film festivals.
What is your go-to snack from the craft services table?
If there are blue berry muffins at the craft services table, then the craftee becomes my best friend.
