Food, Film and Friends (with Electric Shadows)

Global Cuisine and World Cinema, Sunday Jan 19

The ultimate food and family film.  Ang Lee’s 1994 ode to family and good food is set in Taipei and revolves around an aging master chef and the love lives of his three adult, but unmarried, daughters.  Bursting with the director’s trademark combination of warmth and grace, this is certainly Lee’s least-viewed masterpiece.  A serious warning: do not come to this screening if you are at all hungry.  You won’t make it through the opening credits.

The good news is, we will have a delectable Taiwanese cooking class just before the screening. Join Chef Sue as she brings you on a culinary voyage across the Taiwanese Straight, where we will explore a cuisine with undeniable Mainland roots, yet with its own unique characteristics. Delicious Taiwanese cuisine followed by a sumptuous cinematic feast for the eyes and ears.

Cooking class starts at 11:00, the screening at 1:30. Screenings are open to those who don’t wish to participate in the class (fees and starting times below), but registration is greatly encouraged as seating is limited.
