Fine dining is on the menu at Dome Fuji Station, a Japanese research facility located in the frozen no-man's land of Antarctica. Based on the autobiographical essays by Chef Jun Nishimura, this quirky comedy tells the story of one cook's journey to a part of the South Pole so cold not even a virus can survive.
Despite the harsh climate, Chef Nishimura is determined to dish up as much mouth-watering fare as possible. From lobster to foie gras and matsuzaka beef, nothing is too good for his crew. It's a good thing, too. As the men try to fill their days of communal isolation with mundane tasks they begin to develop bizarre cravings, an eccentric fashion sense and a longing for home. Their much-anticipated meal times maybe the only thing keeping them from going stir crazy!
Join us for this delectable cinematic blend of daily life and daily bread. Whatever you do, don't come hungry!
