Not Too Sweet

*the highest culinary compliment your Asian auntie could bestow

Highlighting work by filmmakers of East and Southeast Asian heritage, Not Too Sweet explores the twisty, tangy, melty role of food across ESEA cultures. From the meditative crafting of a clay dumpling, to grocery store dance routines with pak choi as props, to the steely glare of an unwanted anchovy - these films offer a tantalising menu of sensory delight but are underpinned by the sharper, sourer feelings of longing and displacement that unite the ESEA diaspora experience.

Curated by artist and filmmaker Rosanna Lee, this selection includes live action, documentary, experimental and animated short films, and will set the scene for queen of the London supper clubs, Rahel Stephanie (@eatwithsp00ns), to serve up a delicious array of dishes that tell the rich and varied story of Indonesian cuisine.

This event takes place in two parts. First is the film screening at 6.30pm - tickets are available for the screening alone now. Second, a supper club that starts at 8pm - tickets for the supper are now sold out.
