Summary
The third film in the Springroll Trilogy interweaves a love of food with cultural and psychic survival. Paul Kwan, who was uprooted from his family and native country by the fall of Saigon, finds comfort in recreating his native foods in San Francisco, his new home (Anatomy of A Springroll). He faced the physical impairment imposed on him by a debilitating stroke (Pins and Noodles).In A Wok in Progress, Paul triumphs over the demons with his sense of whimsy, lyricism, and of course, his enjoyment of food and family. A Wok in Progress is a joyous romp through memory; a touch of personal philosophy; a distillation of sensory perceptions surrounding food and its preparation. Identity and a sense of well being are re-created in the kitchen. The co-producer's Jewish mother adds her latkes to the culinary mix. The film is a celebration of the powers of recovery on many different levels
