The screening on 1 March will be followed by a Q&A with director Mika Kaurismäki.

Director Mika Kaurismäki has made one of the most charming, delightful features of his long career. There are echoes of Local Hero in Master Cheng as a widowed chef and his son arrive in a remote Finnish village. Far from his home in Shanghai, Cheng (Pak Hon Chu) is in search of a cherished benefactor whom he promised to visit. He is welcomed by diner owner Sirkka (Anna-Maija Tuokko). He repays her kindness by cooking food that the entire community appreciates. He is soon beguiled by a beautiful, warmhearted village that might just have the power to heal him.
