Curry Beef

Dir. Jonathan Burton 2022

USA 24 min

For many descendants of immigrants, the throughline to their motherland is often found through food. Those who hail from colonies past and present may often find their culinary heritage is one borne through blood, tears, and hope. In this short documentary, Jonathan Burton, a 1st generation Guyanese, prepares Curry Beef, a dish spread internationally through british imperialism, for his grandmother as she speaks about her experience living in Guyana during its colonial era and the time after. Through this, one may experience two cultures simultaneously, that of a 3rd culture descendant seeking to grasp onto his heritage and one born from the source.
