About this submission
A true story about my cousin, Karen Jung, who grew up in our conservative Chinese American family while working for Martin Scorsese as his personal chef in the 1990s. She was an old school hippy-from-the-80s-turned-creative-connoisseur-cook. It’s 1997. She unexpectedly joins our family for our annual Chinese New Years Dim Sum dinner celebration at the Golden Unicorn Restaurant in Chinatown NYC. She comes to tell us about her recent experiences shooting “Kundun,” about the life of the Dalai Lama with Marty; her new life plans after an enlightenment experience in the desert; and why she’s quitting her job.
