1–2/3 Mika Kaurismäki’s Master Cheng at Glasgow Film Festival
The screening on 1 March will be followed by a Q&A with director Mika Kaurismäki. Master Cheng tells a story of a widowed chef and his son arriving in a remote Finnish village. Far from his home in Shanghai, Cheng (Pak Hon Chu) is in search of a cherished benefactor whom he promised to visit. He is welcomed by diner owner Sirkka (Anna-Maija Tuokko). He repays her kindness by cooking food that the entire community appreciates. He is soon beguiled by a beautiful, warmhearted village that might just have the power to heal him.
The Finnish Institute supports the event.
