“A cheery Taiwanese bubble gum blockbuster … [a] love letter to food, and how it can transcend culture, time and space.” – Meniscus Magazine
Twenty years ago, Master Fly Spirit was a veritable god of ban-doh, Taiwan’s tradition of outdoor banqueting. But after Master Fly Spirit’s death, his only child, the impetuous Wan, spurned her father’s cuisine in order to become a model – until her life falls apart, that is, when she returns home to discover the family business is on the verge of bankruptcy. Their only hope: to get the old crew back together and win a $1 million cooking competition against all the odds.
A runaway smash hit in its homeland and official selection at this year’s Berlinale culinary cinema section, Zone Pro Site is the irrepressible new Technicolor farce from local hero Chen Yu-Hsun. By equal measures riotous, heartfelt and wacky, Zone Pro Site is powered by a hilarious roster of over-the-top characters and a deep, authentic love for the culture and cuisine of Taiwan.
