The Taste of Desire (ENG. SUBS.)
Willemiek Kluijfhout

This is a special screening with English subtitles and a Q&A with director Willemiek Kluijfhout. Kluijfhout and students of the Erasmus University will have a discussion moderated by Catherine Somze (who is also the voice-over in the film).

A documentary that examines the complexities of human desire.

In this poetic trip around the world, the oyster – with its sensual and lavish associations – acts as metaphor to explore human desires and drives, linking stories of a New York burlesque dancer, French Michelin-starred chefs, a Swedish oyster diver, a Japanese pearl maker and a terminally ill English psychologist. The protagonists have their own special connection to the oyster, revealing their ambitions, desires and existential fears. This cinematic documentary explores the intricate nature of our deepest yearnings and quest for fulfilment.
