Every day the Slow Migrants network supports cooks, farmers, cheesemakers, beekeepers and many others who cultivate the diversity of their lands, putting slow processes of adaptation into action and giving rise to new cross-cultural gastronomic fusions. Slow Food is trying to shine a light on this often-submerged world, a microcosm capable of changing the lifestyles …
Slow Food believes that the preparation and the sharing of food can become important driving forces for social liberation for migrant communities. From invisible subjects to visible actors: Through these projects, migrants can become protagonists in cultural initiatives that add value to diversity and enrich the gastronomic heritage of the place where they are living.
There will be a large number of communities taking part in the 2018 Migranti Film Festival, from India, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Romania, Morocco, Mexico, Nigeria, and Senegal. Let’s get to know some of the people whom we will meet in Pollenzo during the four days of the festival. Here the story of Dulce Chan Cab. Though she has lived in Italy for 20 years, she is originally from Mexico and has vivid memories of the Mayan culture in which she was immersed from an early age.
