The Search for General Tso

  • Date: 08 December 18:00 - 21:30
  • Location: Het Koorenhuis

Directed by: Ian Cheney

Who was General Tso, and why are we eating his chicken? The Search for General Tso is a documentary film that dives into how Chinese cuisine has adapted to American culture in order for the culture to survive in a hostile environment. The film touches on how Americans do not seek authenticity but instead want a window into the culture while staying within their comfort zone. In cooperation with the United Nation’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) Netherlands we want to explore how migration colors our life in The Netherlands.
