Now screening on our Digital Array, John Hansard Gallery is pleased to present Ellie Kyungran Heo’s film, Did You Eat Rice? (2017). . The phrase, ‘did you eat rice’ in Asian culture means ‘have you eaten?’, and usually refers to a specific meal: breakfast, lunch or dinner. This idiom also functions as a greeting and an expression of concern for someone, for example, as a substitute for ‘how have you been?’, ‘are you okay?’, or ‘is everything alright?’ . The experimental documentary film explores the sensitive relationships that exist between local farmers and their natural environments during the rice harvest in Omachi, Japan. . With thanks to @luxmovingimage. . Until 17 August 2024. .
