In this clip the two share a durian, while Kveta explains how they fell in love. Durian is thought by many cultures to be an aphrodisiac – could this have something to do with it?? hmmm.
A little later the couple introduce durian to some picnickers at a campground. One of the girls asks Mango where fruitarians get their protein from. Mango could have said “durian!”. According to many Indonesians we meet, durian is a high protein fruit. (at about 3% protein, it’s actually about average for fruit).
Emile Bokaer produced the film for his thesis project at Stanford University. For a low budget film, it’s a beautifully crafted piece of work. We particularly enjoyed seeing many people we have met in our past travels on the screen, as well as the durian snippets 🙂
