Davidson Film Club Presents “Eat Drink Man Woman”
The next film to be shown by the Davidson Film Club, “Eat Drink Man Woman,” will be on Saturday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m. at the Armour Street Theatre. Directed by Ang Lee in 1994, it is a classic Taiwanese comedy/drama, in Mandarin with English subtitles. The running time is two hours, 4 minutes.
This drama centers upon the relationships within a Taipei family. The father is a master chef who has lost his sense of taste but is still revered and consulted in the culinary community. Since the death of his wife, he lives among his three grown daughters, all of whom really want to get on with their own lives. The film focuses on the ritual of an elaborate dinner each Sunday and on the love lives of all the family members…all of them.
The film will be introduced and discussion led by Dr. Shelley Rigger, an internationally recognized expert on Taiwan, and currently the Chair of Chinese Studies at Davidson College.
The Armour Street Theatre is located at 307 Armour Street, Davidson. Cost for a subscription for all six films is $35. Walk-in’s are welcome at a cost of $9 per film.
