A scene from Richard Fung's film Dal Puri Diaspora.
Trinis who live abroad will be all too familiar
with the seasonal longings for all things local,
and T&T-born-and-raised, Toronto-based film-
maker Richard Fung is no different.
His longing for---and near obsession with---
dhalpuri roti turned into an epic journey, taking
him from Canada to Trinidad and thence to India,
in search of the origins of this tasty dish.
Fung recorded this culinary quest, and the result
was the documentary Dal Puri Diaspora.
A free screening of this 80-minute film will be
held by the T&T Film Festival (TTFF), as part of
the We Beat Festival, on June 7 from 7 pm at the

greater understanding of dhalpuri s remarkable
passage across space and time, linking colonialism,
migration and the globalisation of tastes.
Dal Puri Diaspora also features interviews with
leading scholars and food writers, including Brinsley
Samaroo and Patricia Mohammed of T&T, and
Pushpesh Pant and Radhika Mongia of India.
The screening of the film on Saturday is spon-
sored by the T&T Film Company (TTFC) and pre-
sented in association with the St James Community
Improvement/We Beat Committee. This is the
fourth year that the TTFF will present a film during
the We Beat celebrations.
Now in its ninth year, the TTFF is presented by
Flow, and given leading sponsorship by bpTT and
TTFC. Technical services will be provided by North
Eleven, the TTFF s official screening partner.
