“This cultural festival- we are showcasing three parts. The first part is the art exhibition that we are featuring thirty eight traditional Chinese painting art that we brought from Taiwan. The second part is the screening of a movie; we are going to show two movies. Tomorrow evening we are going to show a short one that will take about forty minutes about Taiwanese cuisines. On Saturday, we are going to show another longer movie and will also be about Taiwanese food, particularly about a moveable feast. We are doing it to help to understand and appreciate not just Chinese painting, but also Taiwanese food.”
