Grandma's Project

Grandma's Project is a web video series that invites people from around the world to film their grandmothers as they share recipes and explain the significance and stories behind their recipes. The project was launched by filmmaker Jonas Pariente and currently receives support from UNESCO. Visitors can check out the first five films in this series in the Films section of this website, and all films are accompanied by featured recipes for those who want to try them out. Each film is approximately eight minutes long. In one film, French director Emma Luchini films and interviews her grandmother, Sonia Debeauvais, as she makes frikkadel, a Danish meat-based dish. In another, Yugoslavian born filmmaker Iva Radivojevic makes knedle, "a gnocchi like dessert" with her grandmother Dragica Karazija. Radivojevic, who emigrated to the United States when she was eighteen, travels to Zagreb, Croatia to film Karazija, who shares family history with her granddaughter as she explains her recipe. New films will be added to this enjoyable and powerful series soon, so stay tuned.
