“The Food Brick” An Enzo the Magazine Documentary
Run Time: 60 min. Format: DCP
From November 1st to November 31st, 2022, Leeban Farah exclusively consumed a hyper-nutritional food brick of his own design. Fed up with spending enormous quantities of time and money on food, and realizing that sustenance was the simple and ultimate goal of eating, Leeban devised this experiment to prove that there must be a better way. No protein bars, no tea, no exceptions; just cold hard brick for thirty days. Doctors advised against it, friends pleaded with him to stop, his parents tried to intervene. To eat only the brick for a month seemed like madness. But the truth of the brick is even more bizarre than anyone could have anticipated. Leeban explores the limits of not only nutrition but the human body itself, and reveals, in the process, a fundamental truth about his perception of sustenance.
