Summary
"The third film of Paul Kwan's odyssoy [sic] interweaves a love of food with cultural and psychic survival. Paul Kwan, who was uprooted from his family and native country by the fall of Saigon, finds comfort in recreating his native foods in San Francisco, his new home (Anatomy of A Springroll). He faced the physical impairment imposed on him by a debilitating stroke (Pins and Noodles). In A Wok in Progress, Paul triumphs over the demons with his sense of whimsy, lyricism, and of course, his enjoyment of food and family"--Container
