Beans, Rinsed Twice follows tales, histories, memories and recipes tied up in a bean. How many stories can a recipe tell? And who do these stories belong to?

Through the personal and historical symbolism of a bean - and, consequently, the process of growing, harvesting and cooking this seed - the film moves between the collaborators’ own memories (in all their factual/fabricated dimensions), expanding on to speak of how we carry multiple places within us, the value of tacit knowledge and the possibilities for a reciprocal language of care.
