New York Premiere
Hardcore food porn of the highest order, Zone Pro Site: The Movable Feast is Taiwan’s attempt to turn your stomach into a howling wasteland that cries out for FOOD! FOOD! FOOD! Failed actress Chan runs away to her hometown trying to stay a step ahead of debt collectors looking to recover the $900,000 she owes. When she gets back to the small town where she grew up she discovers that the only way to raise the cash she needs is to start catering out of her stepmother’s hole-in-the-wall restaurant, which leads her to enter a cooking contest with a $1 million prize. Of course, all that cash will go right into the pockets of the gangsters on her tail, but still… it’s that or wind up in pieces. Assisting her on her culinary quest are Doctor Gourmet, a wandering stud who helps people improve the taste of their dishes, and a series of street-stall chefs who used to be her dad’s competition. The result is a movie that’s as colorful as a bowl full of hard candies, an endless foodie feast that will have you gnawing on the stuffing from your seat cushion in hunger. Presented with the support of the Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York.
