Still image from A Wok-In-Progress

The third film in the Springroll Trilogy. Paul triumphs over the demons with his sense of whimsy, lyricism, and of course, his enjoyment of food and family. Highlights a joyous romp through memory, a touch of personal philosophy, and a distillation of sensory perceptions surrounding food and its preparation. Identity and a sense of well-being are re-created in the kitchen. Paul's Jewish mother adds her latkes to the culinary mix.
