Before the screening.
We were delighted to present our first JCC Cinema of the year on 24 February 2018, with the screening of Jimami Tofu, a co-production featured film between award-winning production company BananaMana Films and the Okinawa Film Office. Shot in Okinawa and Singapore, the intertwining romance, food and the theme of homecoming surrounding the film in homage to Okinawa, its village life and traditional Ryukyu cuisine, take centre stage in this movie.

Before the start of the screening, the film director and cast, Mr Christian Lee and Mr Jason Chan, made a special appearance and gave their welcome remarks to the audience. After which, the audience enjoyed the heart-warming film, and even had the chance to bring back Jimami Tofu from Okinawa after the screening.
