This paper will give a comprehensive overview of what leads to the creation of the film. Eating is a multisensory experience, we use our sense of smell, sight, touch, and taste to experience the dish. We tend to forget about this fact when we are eating alone, we perform other acts such as watching tv shows or looking at phones when eating. The film is an audio-visual intervention on solo-eating behavior. The screen switches between two configurations, either fill the whole screen or splits into two sections, showing different camera perspectives alongside close-up scenes of the facial, body movements, and intimate up-close audio from the character. By depicting and analyzing the emotional state of a person during the act of eating, the film provokes being mindful of food and acknowledging the process of eating.
