The aim of this project was to make a film, which showcases an instance of the extraordinary culture of Indian tribes. The Karbi Kitchen gives a mouthwatering and knowledgeable experience to the audience, about the food and culture of the Karbi tribe of Assam. Since food and culture are strongly related, traditional recipes usually have great stories behind them. The film intends to bring to its audience these interesting stories behind the tribe’s traditional recipes, the effect of the local culture on their food, ingredients and eating habits. To augment the traditional rawness of the film, the ambience sound was blended with visuals and the sounds of nature and cooking were cleverly incorporated to create a unique experience for the audience.
