The Search for General Tso is a feature-length documentary tracing the origins of Chinese American food through what is arguably America’s most popular takeout meal – General Tso’s Chicken. In the filmmaker’s own words, the film “uses the Americanized dish and its mysterious mastermind as a lens into a larger story of immigration, adaptation and innovation, and follows a lighthearted journey, grounded in cultural and culinary history, through restaurants, Chinatowns, and the American imagination.” The Search for General Tso premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival.
