American Dumpling is a feature-length documentary about many diverse

cultures and the one food they have in common-dumplings. It presents
itself as a simple story of flour, water and salt, and how these
ingredients bind us together in our search for "comfort food". It is a
movie that focuses not on our differences, but on what binds us
together as a society, regardless of our race, gender or age. The
melting pot of America is the melting pot of the dumpling, and
although each cook has his own unique little spin he puts in the
recipe, it still boils down to three ingredients that are absolutely
necessary-flour, water and salt.

  1. The making of the food dumplings may have the power to bring neighborhoods together is an axiom for thought, conversation functions as an added ingredient in the mix, brought together by proper proportions of flour, salt, and water; feeds the weightier need of being loved.
