About the event
We are excited to announce the first meeting of the new JSB Film Club!
Our first film will be Tampopo (1985) directed by Juzo Itami. In this humorous homage to the joys of food, a pair of truck drivers happen onto a decrepit roadside shop selling ramen noodles. The widowed owner, Tampopo, begs them to help her turn her establishment into a paragon of the "art of noodle-soup making."
