Beginning with nearly seven minutes of aerial shots traveling from the shore to a plantation in Haiti’s rugged interior, the narrative framework of "Eat, For This is My Body" moves from an elderly, bedridden white matriarch, conflicted about her allegiances, to her daughter Madame and a younger woman's cat-and-mouse relationship with a group of feisty native boys. This film is a surreal, largely non-narrative commentary on Haiti as it is today and as it is (or perhaps once was) imagined.
