FINAL RECIPE (2013)

DIR: Gina Kim SCR: George Huang, Gina Kim CAST: Michelle Yeoh, Henry Lau, Chin Han

UCLA TFT professor Gina Kim’s culinary-centered, transnational family melodrama reinforces the truth that our hunger for comfort food and home are often invariably linked--and food competition shows will never fail in getting our taste buds salivating. So, why not stage a family reunion in the midst of the making of one? Such a premise gives us contemporary Asian cinema’s grande dame, Michelle Yeoh (who is also an executive producer) as Julia, the glamorous host of a popular Shanghai-based cooking competition show.

DCP, color, 97 min.

PHOENIX BAKERY: SWEETS FOR THE SWEET (2020)

DIR: Janet Chen.

Celebrate Phoenix Bakery’s 80th anniversary with the family behind this Chinese American bakery institution in the ever-evolving Chinatown, Los Angeles.
