“Scooping the Oyster Princess: A Live Video Essay Cooking Class”
THE OYSTER PRINCESS will be slurped and devoured in real time. This live presentation of certain video essay techniques will reveal how Ernst Lubitsch’s classics are put together, by looking at the camera work, production design and acting of the German master with fresh eyes. Eating the food raw is recommended. Cocktail sauce can be served as desired.
