This Week's Film: The King of Masks
Cuisine: Chinese

Synopsis: An aging street performer seeking to pass along the Chinese art of mask magic must find a male protégé to carry on the tradition. Since he has no son of his own, he turns to the black market to buy an eight-year-old boy. But the child carries a dark secret that presents the old man with a difficult dilemma.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Chinese recipe.
