A Chinatown Institution Gets its Own Movie

Nom Wah Tea Parlor, the 92-year-old dim sum restaurant and Chinatown institution, is a film set this week, Eater NY reported. Nom Wah’s manager, Wilson Tang, whose family owns the restaurant, is executive producing a movie set in the 92-year-old dim sum joint, which is slated for release in 2013. Here’s the synopsis, from the film’s website:

Nom Wah Tea Parlor (Via Nomwah.com)

Nom Wah is the story of the eponymous New York dim sum restaurant, Nom Wah Tea Parlor and the immigrant lives that pulse through its doors. Told through four stories that intersect at the restaurant: A young Chinese immigrant struggles to adapt to his new life… A TV presenter must find the strength to leave a one-sided relationship. A college professor must cope with his wife’s recent passing. Luscious dim sum dumplings serve as an allegory for love, after all “dim sum” when translated is “bits of heart.”

For those interested in being a part of the action, the filmmakers are looking for volunteer extras, and will be shooting until Thursday.
