Movie Night: Babettes Feast
Venue: Jonsson Performance Hall
The Center for Values in Medicine, Science and Technology Food for Thought lecture series starts with screening of Babette’s Feast, a movie about people living in a small isolated village of 19th century Denmark. Babette, a French woman, who finds a refuge in the household run by two daughters of a local pastor, gets a chance to prepare an extraordinary meal—a feast—for her Danish hosts and for the parishioners. Join us to watch this beautiful story of friendship, food and shared meal—a perfect prelude to this year’s series of lectures.
In the 2013-14 Food For Thought: What Should We Eat? series of lectures and events, the Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology will explore the issues of ethics and values that arise in the fields of consumption and production of food. With the help of our speakers, we will examine how economic, political and cultural values and ethics should shape our decisions about what to eat and how to get it.
