Oscilloscope Cooks Up Deal for Wayne Wang’s ‘Soul of a Banquet’ Documentary

Release planned for later this year

Oscilloscope Laboratories has come to the table for Wayne Wang’s “Soul of a Banquet,”  acquiring worldwide rights to the documentary while it is still in production.

Producers for the film, which will be released later this year,  are Wang, Richard Wong and Jonathan Bing. The film focuses on Cecilia Chiang, touted as introducing America to authentic Chinese food with the opening of her restaurant The Mandarin in 1961 in San Francisco.

“Banquet” includes interviews with Chang, Alice Waters and Ruth Reichl.

Wang’s credits include “Smoke,” “Maid in Manhattan” and “A Thousand Years of Good Prayers.”

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to bring Wayne’s deeply touching and wonderfully delicious portrait to audiences,” said Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub said, “It’s a late Christmas gift to O-Scope – and what better way for two Jewish boys to celebrate Christmas than with Chinese food?”
