"The Path of Stone Soup" was featured at the recent Morelia en Boca festival of food and wine in Morelia, Mexico. The film was screened at the Morelia International Film Festival in 2015, and again this year with the addition of a "Stone Soup Pop Up" culinary demo and tasting. Victor Gachupin of the Caldo de Piedra family restaurant wowed attendees with his culinary prowess. If you read spanish, you can learn more about the event in this recently published interview with Victor and Director Arturo Juarez.
The Gachupin Velasco family is ready to bring stone soup back to the United States. They have been invited to participate in a conference on Indigenous Resource Management in Colorado, and plan to stop in New Orleans along the way! With the support of Chris and Cindy Wood at Vaughan's Lounge, we are planning for a week of film screenings and soup prep and tastings for local foodies, to last from October 5-11, 2015.
The Path of Stone Soup was screened on Sunday, August 2 as part of the programming for the 25th First People's Festival in Montreal, Canada. We are excited and honored to be included in this celebration of Aboriginal cultures in the Americas.
In November 2014, the Stone Soup production crew traveled with members of the Gachupin family to Nova Scotia, Canada to screen our film and host a pre-Hispanic pop-up experience for an international crowd of foodies including the incomparable Anthony Bourdain!
