THE MICHOACAN FILE is a new documentary film that explains Mexican food’s origin, history, and impact on modern society. For over 300 years, Mexico was where European and Asian trade routes collided, leaving behind a vast and robust gastronomic culture with an enormous recipe repertoire. This explains why Mexican food is infinite in recipes, varieties, and flavors today.
In 2010, UNESCO designated Mexican food as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and for the first time ever, a gastronomic culture was to be protected and elevated to the same level as art or science.
Exploring past and present and told from the point of view of culinary experts, anthropologists, and traditional cooks actively engaged in this debate, THE MICHOACAN FILE is a timely, culturally significant, and provocative documentary film that challenges and ultimately deconstructs what we understand about Mexican Food.
