Please purchase tickets to this screening at the theater box office.
Follow the rise of Filipino food via the award-winning chefs as they cross over to the center of the American table. This culinary movement is not only a remarkable achievement for American restaurateurs, but also as a validation of Filipino culture. The film confronts issues inherent in representing both Filipino and American identity, and challenges from both the Filipino community and the world at large. The film is a celebration — and confirmation — that Filipino food, and Filipinos, are here to stay.
