To Drink or not to Drink: Gazpacho

Mockumentary is a widespread non-fiction genre in which the modes of representation of documentary cinema are used to tell a fictional tale. This genre has often been used as a satirical tool because of the contrast between the implausibility of the content and the veracity conveyed by the way it is told. And this is the purpose with which Stephanie Gerding uses him to explore the stereotypes surrounding the national gastronomies, in particular the Sevillian one. The object to be explored is the famous gazpacho, which in this final project delights the Spaniards and is a source of displeasure for the Americans. The result is hilarious and amusing, of course, but this does not prevent a far-reaching reflection from awakening in us: Is it necessary to belong to a particular culture in order to truly appreciate the products generated by it?
