The next screening in our Artist's Choice programme is the 1986 film, 'Tampopo', selected by artist and curator, Jonty Lees.


How far would you go for the perfect ramen? Tampopo is a roadside ramen cook vying to create the best ramen around. She is guided in her quest by scrappy truck drivers Gun and Gorō.

In wicked parodies of film genres, Gun and Gorō run Tampopo through a rigorous training process, steal secrets of broth-making and challenge other ramen-makers in Spaghetti Western style stand-offs.

This film has been selected by Jonty Lees, who will give a brief introduction. Jonty is an artist, the curator and founder of Zennor Project Space and director of Pool Academy Gallery.

Free admission, all welcome. CAST Café food from 6pm, some ramen and something sweet from £7.50. The screening will begin at 7pm.
