‘The Great Meal’ conveys the brand’s optimistic take on this shared experience, celebrating some of the silver linings of the time we have spent together over meals and around the table. Around the world, people have come to re-appreciate the things that matter most to us and we’ll take that gratitude and humility with us moving forward.
Filmed remotely during the Covid-19 quarantine, the film showcases 13 real families, couples, housemates in households from eight different cities around the world including Orlando, Shanghai, Lisbon, Kiev, London, Mumbai, and Mexico City. The people in the film cook their own food and follow their own recipes.
Up-and-coming actress Soleil Patterson brings to life the voiceover, reminding us how the lockdown has allowed us to realise what matters in life, to rediscover ourselves and to re- appreciate what was always there, like spending time with our people, cooking and eating together.
The music track is ‘Sabali’ by Mali duo Amadou & Mariam, from the Grammy-nominated album ‘Welcome to Mali.’
