Inspired by the 30th anniversary of the sublime ramen comedy, TAMPOPO (one of the best food films made), we are screening a digital restoration of the film with the International Film Series in Muenzinger Auditorium on the CU-Boulder campus.
In addition to the film, enjoy ramen samples from Black Cat, a Japanese knives showcase from Chefs Custom Cutlery, and samples from the Niwot Doughnut Company and Upstart Kombucha.
TAMPOPO is a Japanese comic tale of food obsession. It offers up culinary adventure interspersed with comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster. Even after 30 years, TAMPOPO remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film. If you are a food or food film lover, you must watch this film.
