Join the San Francisco Green Film Festival and the San Francisco Public Library for a special screening of Mondo Banana
Journey to the world of bananas! Deep in the forests of Sumatra, a Finnish sea captain seeks an elusive banana. In a Kolkata kitchen, Bengali chefs prepare scrumptious banana stalk curries. As the sun blazes in Kuala Lumpur, a Chinese exorcist calls forth an evil banana spirit.... Embarking on an international journey through the vibrant world of human-banana relationships, Bay Area filmmaker Ryan White explores the personal, cultural, and environmental importance of one of the world's favorite fruits.
A delicious blend of video art and ethnographic film, Mondo Banana is a wild medley of shadow puppetry, culinary demonstrations, exorcisms, scientific research, anthropology, and dragon-dancing that peels away the secrets of human-banana relations and celebrates the age-old connection between people and plants.
Screening followed by discussion with Ryan White, director of Mondo Banana.
