The Taste of Desire

Willemiek Kluijfhout

A cinematic exploration of our deepest yearnings for the oyster as a symbol of human drive and desire.

In this poetic voyage around the world, the oyster - with its sensual and lavish associations – acts as a metaphor to explore our human drives and desires. Linking stories of a New York burlesque dancer, French Michelin-starred chefs, a Swedish oyster diver, a Japanese pearl maker and a terminally ill English psychologist, the documentary dives into the intricate nature of our deepest yearnings and quest for self-fulfilment. To what lengths will we go to satisfy our desires?
