Amuri - The sacred flavors of Sicily



Amuri - The sacred flavors of Sicily

A documentary film about celebrating and preserving the recipes and slow food traditions of Sicily's religious festivals presented by Fabrizia Lanza.

Directed by Palermo-born Giacomo Costa, Amuri is a year's journey through the colorful cuisine of five religious festivals across the island. This is a Sicily rarely seen by outsiders, a Sicily where it is the bread-kneading grandmother and the village priest in the camera’s focus. Amuri is an intimate portrait of the culinary and religious traditions at the center of the Sicilian spirit, traditions that have outlasted centuries of invasion, earthquake, and corruption. From the sculptural village breads of Saint Joseph day in March, to the castanet-like clatter of snails cooked in Palermo for Santa Rosalia in July, the documentary takes viewers on a mouth-watering tour around Sicily.
