“Let them eat cake.”

...a global view of the perils and pleasures of pastry


Let Them Eat Cake



Julian Joseph of the Ceres Food Film Festival interviews Alexis Krasilovsky


When "Let Them Eat Cake" first screened in 2014, it was ahead of its time, with scenes pertaining to global warming, food inequality, starvation, farmer suicides and refugees, in addition to some of the most beautiful pastries from a rich variety of cultures. We're excited that the world is ready to watch "Let Them Eat Cake".

If you missed the on-line screening at the Ceres Food Film Festival, October 16-20, 2022, you can still watch the film for free with a public library card on Kanopy.com.


"The film is really powerful - as well as beautifully done. A remarkable feat to coordinate filming on five continents and in at least as many languages." - Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Joseph S. Atha Professor in Humanities, Stanford University

"Great interview, great film. So much we shouldn't look away from." - Barbara Twigg - Washington, DC
