Mayukh Sen Selects

November 3 to November 7

Before he won the James Beard Journalism Award that cemented his status as a breakout star of contemporary food writing in 2018, Mayukh Sen was a Stanford film student and all-around cinema lover. Now, on the occasion of the publication of his book Taste Makers: Seven Immigrant Women Who Revolutionized Food in America by W.W. Norton & Co., Sen shows he never lost his taste for movies, coming to Metrograph with a program of films on female labor, migration, and food that inspired him as he wrote this group biography, including choice cuts from Pedro Almodóvar, Gregory Nava, Wayne Wang, and Ousmane Sembène. Pull up a chair and tuck in.
