Imagination 2023 – Cheuk Kwan
Come meet author and documentary director Cheuk Kwan!
Cheuk Kwan was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Singapore and Japan. Immigrating to Canada in 1976 Kwan embarked upon a successful globe-trotting career in information technology. His international and diasporic upbringing gave him an early start in world travel and opportunities to meet people from numerous countries. Kwan’s five films from the Chinese Restaurants series—Song of the Exile, On the Islands, Three Continents, Latin Passions, and Beyond Frontiers—bring together his personal experiences, love of food and travel, and appreciation of the Chinese diaspora culture worldwide. Have You Eaten Yet?, published by Douglas & McIntyre, is inspired by the films.
He will talk about his book Have You Eaten Yet? with host Héloise Leclerc.
