Chinese Restaurants – BEYOND FRONTIERS: Director CHEUK KWAN and Cinematographer KWOI in Attendance

Chinese Restaurants – BEYOND FRONTIERS:
Director CHEUK KWAN and Cinematographer KWOI in Attendance



Cheuk Kwan is a cool guy – so is his cinematogapher (camera man),
Kwoi.  Last year I watched his incredible documentary series
Chinese Restaurants.

Cheuk travels the world checking out Chinese restaurants, and getting
the stories behind them.  He is also an ardent support of Chinese
Canadian head tax redress.

I LOVE his “3 Continents” documentary.  It includes a visit of
“Noisy Jim Cook” at his small restaurant in Outlook Sasketchewan, where
Cook was a beloved town institution and encouraged to run for mayor.
