Chinese Restaurant Screening + Q&A with the director / producer

Cheuk Kwan, filmaker
From 2000 to 2003, Canadian filmmaker Cheuk Kwan scoured the world for good eats and intriguing stories from the Chinese diaspora. The five films that comprise Chinese Restaurants explore issues of migration, family, history and identity through the lens of Chinese restaurants from Israel to South Africa, from the Amazon to the Indian Ocean. The third film, Three Continents, covers family restaurant owners on the 'Big Island' of Madagascar, inside the Arctic Circle in Norway, and on the Canadian Prairies, exploring the long history of Chinese migration and settlement in three continents. These stories highlight the fluidity and highly personal nature of identity, and the human impulse to connect both with the past and with those amongst whom we find ourselves.
