WITH SPECIAL GUESTS WAYNE WANG AND CECILIA CHIANG

The Mill Valley Film Festival is proud to honor the contributions of renowned filmmaker Wayne Wang and the subject of his new film, legendary culinary artist Cecilia Chiang, with this special screening of Soul of a Banquet. Both Chiang and Wang have deep roots in the San Francisco Bay Area and, as immigrants and visionaries, have made extraordinary contributions in their respective artistic domains. As the owner-founder of the beloved Mandarin Restaurant, Chiang pioneered a new style of Northern Chinese cuisine. Wang’s films have often em- braced the role of food in the creation and transmission of culture (Dim Sum: A Little Bit of Heart, The Joy Luck Club). We promise an unforgettable evening of culinary and cinematic delights.
