Slow Food Russian River is honored to sponsor, with our partner Laguna Farm, Les Blank’s 1980 documentary _Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers_ at the 8th Annual Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival.
This cinematic song in praise of the glories of garlic is a foray into the history, consumption, cultivation, and culinary and curative powers of allium sativum. Featuring appearances by a host of passionate garlic lovers including Alice Waters at her Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, and plenty of lively music as only Les Blank can deliver. You’ll be amazed at the hundreds of uses to which that pungent herb can be put.
Shown together with _Gap-Toothed Women_, a film by Les Blank, Maureen Gosling, Chris Simon and Susan Kell, 1987. Part of the Les Blank Program of the 2015 Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival.
