"The Search For General Tso" Special Los Angeles Engagement

I'm looking forward to the special Los Angeles screenings of director/writer Ian Cheney's "The Search for General Tso" which plays January 2nd thru January 8th at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood.  The Sundance Selects documentary produced by Jennifer Lee & Amanda Murray is a USA/Taiwan/China production running 71 minutes in English.  I'm curious to find out who was General Tso & why we are eating his chicken & I'm told that this feature documentary explores the origins & ubiquity of Chinese-American food through the story of the iconic & spicy chicken dish.  Following Sunday's screening at 5:10 pm there will be a special Q&A with producer Jennifer Lee moderated by food blogger Zach Brooks (Midtown Lunch) & KCRW's Evan Kleiman (Good Food) which includes General Tso chicken  served in the  courtyard - sounds tantalizing...  Tickets are only $15 for this special event.  According to EFilm Critic "If all you've ever done is eaten the chicken, you'll learn about immigration, community, cuisine & Oing Dynasty history."  Visit www.arenascreen.com for show times & to find out what else is screening at the Arena.  HH
