Description

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Grace Lee, Off the Menu: Asian America takes us on a road trip across the US—from Honolulu, Hawai‘i to Oak Creek, Wisconsin to New York, New York—in an exploration of how family, history, faith, and geography shape our relationships to food and our communities. Lee, producer Eurie Chung, food scholar Krishnendu Ray (NYU Food Studies), chef Jonathan Wu and his partner Wilson Tang (whose innovative restaurant Fung Tu is featured in the film) join us for a post-screening discussion, moderated by film scholar Chi-hui Yang. Co-sponsored by CAAM (Center for Asian American Media), Museum of Chinese in America, and Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health in NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. This event took place on October 16th, 2015.
