Kitchen Quartet by Nicole Midori Woodford has been selected for the 6th edition of PROJECT: slingSHORT. This year's screening is held in conjunction with PUSH! on Saturday 28th July at 3.00pm.
Synopsis:A food critic unknowingly alters a young female chef's fate. Her path ironically echoes that of the food critic's son. Both daughter and son, in two vastly different families, uses food as a means to reconcile with their respective estranged parents.
In a food obsessed nation, the power of food manifests in our lives in a myriad of ways. A patronizing food critic unknowingly affects a female chef. Forced to question her culinary career, she re-examines her relationship with her hawker mum while the withdrawn young son of the critic uses food as a means of connecting with his father. The film depicts how the two different families confront their inner selves without them realizing how their lives intertwine.
