Dumpling Feast

  • Czech Republic

The ‘Dumpling Feast’ was a private event held by Dana and Jiří Němec on Prague’s Ječná Street. The idea for the event came from Ivan M. Jirous, who looked after the family’s secret dumpling recipe. The film, besides showing several people cooking, looks at an improvised concert. The central focus of Dumpling Feast is on a ‘happening’ by Jan Steklík and Karel Nepraš of the Crusader School of Pure Humor Without Jokes, who conduct a debacle around the ‘measuring of the food.’
