“The way to the heart is always through the stomach” – Allan Hunter, Screen International

“The kind of foodie fix that’s a must-have” - Variety

This month’s Courtyard Cinema screening will be extra special with a FREE screening of RAMEN SHOP from Singaporean director Eric Khoo and starring #HIFF38 Maverick Award honoree Takumi Saitoh! The screening will take place at a different location than the usual Courtyard Cinema venue and will be held at Victoria Ward Park (location where last month’s Noodle Fest took place). To honor the film’s loving cross-cultural tribute of family, ramen and bakuteh, Ward Village is planning to also have food stands selling ramen during the screening! Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 9 for this truly special foodie and film event!

Film Title: RAMEN SHOP

Synopsis: #HIFF38 Maverick Award Honoree Takumi Saitoh plays Masato, a young Ramen chef, leaves his hometown in Japan to embark on a culinary journey to Singapore to find the truth about his past. He uncovers a lot more than family secrets and delicious recipes.

Doors open at 6pm / Screening starts right after sundown
