This Week's Film: The Betrayal
Cuisine: Laotian

Synopsis: This Oscar-nominated documentary spans more than twenty years in the life of Laotian refugee Thavisouk Phrasavath, from fleeing in the aftermath of covert operations in Laos by the U.S. during the Vietnam war, to his immigration to Brooklyn to reunite with his family.

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 Laotian recipe.
