Welcome to Chopstick Cinema for the Month of July

This Month's Film: Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles
Cuisine: Japanese Chinese

This month, I'm featuring a lovely cinematic bijou by my favorite Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou. In this poignant tale, a Japanes man travels to Yunan Province to fulfill his dying son's wish see a performance of famous mask opera. To go with the film, a menu of Chinese dishes that are also popular in Japan.
