Project Description

Length: 11mins 53sec
Director: Christine Seow

“Food is the most important thing in the life of a Chinese”. This reflects the importance of the food culture to the Chinese. The film is from a foreign student’s perspective, in how she sees China and in particular, Lanzhou. Through exploring Lanzhou and its famous snacks, she realises how food can integrate different cultures together. The representation of Lanzhou snacks is shown through its traditional glutinous rice mixed with milk and eggs and Peizi sweet tea mixed with lemon pulp water charm. This displays an amalgamation of tradition and innovation.
