Dir. Dir. Mariko Bobrik | 2019, 84min
With Thang Long Do, Lena Nguyen, Aleksandra Domańska

New York Premiere! Warsaw-based, Japanese-born filmmaker Mariko Bobrink shines a light on Poland’s Vietnamese population in this poignant drama about love, misunderstanding, and food. Long, a Vietnamese cook and long-time Warsaw resident, has built up a loyal following for his expertly-made pho, until the restaurant is sold to a new owner who wants to revamp the menu. The change exacerbates Long’s struggles to fit into European culture and the generational divide with his ten-year-old daughter, who has embraced Poland as her own.

Presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York and co-programmed by Tomek Smolarski
