A Collaboration between Star Wars and Food

Kam Raslan | Pauline Fan, PUSAKA | Julian Yap

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Pauline Fan of PUSAKA and Julian Yap help Kam answer some of pop culture’s biggest questions: Whether Star Wars is a modern mythology, why food rarely appears in cinema, and how to differentiate a good contemporary traditional collaboration from a bad one. We are officially one month away from The Rise of Skywalker, so in the spirit of the countdown Kam brings forth the notion that the entire Stars Wars universe is the ultimate Iliad of the 21st Century. Meanwhile, cinephile Julian gives this episode a Skip Intro twist as she dives into the different aspects and cultural significances of food in film. Pauline then emphasizes the importance of respecting the meaning behind contemporary traditional collaborations, which tend to be taken lightly or superficially.
