Tasila Banda – Housemaid and Daughter of a Chef

I spent a Tuesday morning with our housemaid Tasila Banda to go to the local market, where she bought a live chicken to prepare chicken stew for lunch. The film documents this process.

Tasila is an excellent cook, who also learned from her father who worked as a chef.

Thanks to Tasila for giving us this insight.

Disclaimer: I, the filmmaker, did not in any way influence or promote the way the livestock seen in this film was handled and treated. The chicken was not utilised for the making of this film. Instead, the idea was, to authentically document & portray the reality of preparing a chicken for food in Zambia.
