The Outside Fire

In The Outside Fire, documentarian and artist Tamika Galanis gives a glimpse into the Bahamian tradition of cooking over open fire, largely abandoned in the modern capital but preserved by communities in the surrounding Family Islands. See glowing Cascarilla branches, ash-covered Dutch ovens, and thieving yard fowl collide over a Saturday feast in South Cat Island’s Port Howe.
