This film is part of Food Without Borders, a collaborative project involving Maurice Ravel Junior High School, Filmmakers Without Borders, and The American University of Paris.

During the fall and winter of 2017-2018, Christy Shields, Beth Grannis, and AUP students worked with a unique 6th grade class consisting of bi-lingual (French and English) students. Through a series of workshops, the AUP team encouraged this class to build bridges and explore their lived experiences through the prism of food and film. Learn more about this project here.
