A tofu factory in Daegu, Korea, is the setting for this tender, moving, and funny inter-generational family saga – an award-winning highlight of the Busan International Film Festival.

As summer arrives, the entire Kim clan gathers for the annual ceremony dedicated to the ancestors. As they bicker and argue over cooking methods, the hierarchy quickly becomes clear. When young Seong-jin finally arrives from Seoul, where he’s pursuing a career in acting, all attention is diverted to him – the golden grandson expected to continue the family’s legacy and take over the tofu factory. But Seong-jin has plans for his future that disrupt the familial order. As the seasons pass by, the family must contemplate their changing world in this extraordinarily confident debut by director Oh Jung-min.

Limited seats are available for patrons requiring access for wheelchairs, low vision and hearing loop. Please contact our ticketing team directly on 1300 733 733 or tickets@sff.org.au to complete your booking.
Male bias and son-worship in Korean society are delicately held up for scrutiny in a film that is in its own small way a kind of tofu-dynasty Succession
Lee Marshall, Screen International
Oh’s film is most reminiscent of the work of the late Taiwanese master Edward Yang (Yi Yi), and there can be little higher praise
Jessica Kiang, Variety
