Food & Farm Film Fest: Tampopo
April 18 only
San Francisco’s one and only Food & Farm Film Fest offers a place for the food and art worlds of San Francisco to collide. We’re in this to have fun, as well as ask tough questions about our food system. The festival is a celebration of food and farming and film, as well as a challenge to our ideas about how we think about food and farms. All proceeds from the Fest benefit our Cooking Matters program.
Tampopo is a classic surrealist food comedy set at a truck stop ramen shop. The heroine, Tampopo (“Dandelion”) is a widow struggling to keep her ramen shop going. Two passing truck drivers take her under the wing and, through a series of subplots and antics, Tampopo learns the tricks, skills, and recipes she needs to make her ramen the best in the region. Truly a food classic and not to be missed!
(Juzo Itami, 1985, 110 minutes)
