Next in the EAC Films lineup will be Tampopo (1985, NR) on August 27 at 7 pm. Directed by Juzo Itami, the newly restored “ramen western” is an audience favorite ‘food film’. Distributor Janus Films synopsizes as follows: “The tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, Tampopo serves up a savory broth of culinary adventure seasoned with offbeat comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster. Sweet, sexy, surreal, and mouthwatering, Tampopo remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film.

EAC Films admission is $7; for G or PG-rated films, attendees 17 and under are admitted free of charge. Following a short break after the film, there will be a discussion group with Jon Bragdon for any who wish to participate. These screenings have been made possible by the Maine Community Foundation Community Building Grant.
