Winner of the Audience Choice Award at its World Premiere at the 37th Hawaii International Film Festival Jimami Tofu has gone on to sell-out screenings in San Francisco, LA, and Okinawa. Singapore’s BananaMana Films in collaboration with the Singapore Film Society serves up a special movie experience, exclusively at Golden Village. Be transported to Okinawa through this moving film featuring dynastic Okinawan cuisine and universal human values. Audiences around the world have been moved to tears while being uplifted to walk out of the cinema with a light spring in their footsteps. “When you handle Okinawan culture, heritage and family like this you come up with a MASTERPIECE…”
A Chinese Singaporean chef formerly working in Tokyo, finds himself in Okinawa begging a disgruntled old chef to teach him traditional Okinawan food. A top Japanese food critic finds herself in Singapore on an eye opening discovery of Southeast Asian cuisine. In reality both are looking for each other after an emotional breakup years ago when she left him without a trace. Emotionally crippled by their breakup, he searches her home-town for her but discovers instead the art of traditional Okinawan food and her childhood best friend. Family secrets unravel and when she suddenly appears in Okinawa looking to find closure he cooks and serves her their final meal. Through it she discovers what she has been yearning for all these years.
