SF Indie Fest: RAMEN HEADS
First show: February 10
Considered an edible embrace, comforting ephemera and an art form by master chefs and legions of fans, ramen—the perfectly slurpable combination of broth and noodles—inspires umami poetry. Japan’s reigning king of ramen, Osamu Tomita, takes us into his kitchen, where he shares recipes, trade secrets and flavor philosophies. RAMEN HEADS is a mouthwatering survey of culinary history, famous restaurants and specialty ingredients, all the while making a compelling case for finding Japan’s heart through its stomach.
Directed by Koki Shigeno. 93 minutes. Japan. 2017.
