Culinary Narratives from the Heartland: The Voice and Vision of SPS Community Media

SPS Community Media, under the guidance of figures like Pinky, has championed the cause of authentic rural storytelling. Through their documentaries, they've brought to the fore the rich tapestry of India's culinary traditions, especially from remote tribal villages of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. This panel discussion seeks to delve deep into their journey, their challenges, their innovations, and the impact they've created. Uncover untold culinary tales, discover the power of authentic media representation, and learn about the magic of mobile cinema connecting remote villages to stories. Two documentaries, "Jowar Gatha" and "Chidiya, Pujara aur Solah Rala Chor," serve as centerpieces for our discussion. Both films dive deep into the significance of millets in the cultural and agricultural landscapes of central India. Join us for this captivating discussion with the team from SPS Community Media, moderated by Chef Thomas Zacharias, as we delve into SPS's mission to showcase India's rich culinary tapestry.
