Food serves as sustenance, and it can serve as a way to connect with one another. In Bloodline, family origins, recipes, cooking traditions, and homeland are honored. While in Savory and Nostalgia, food has the ability to bring back dear memories of loved ones. sống ở đây (to live here) explores cultivating food on land and water. Find connection and welcome through food and flavor while traveling in Quan 13 of Paris, France.

Vietnamese Culture and Science Association (VCSA) is a proud Community Partner for Cravings for Connection.

TAM VU, a retired photographer, clings himself onto a rundown pho joint where he believes that the essence of his deceased wife would still remain with him, as long as the shop is open. This ultimately puts a strain onto his relationship with his son LAM, the only bridge that connects him to reality.
