Cultural Translation in Cinema : an Evening with Garin Nugroho - October 19, 2013

Posted on October 28, 2013 by Jane Gostling

Dabu-Dabu was thrilled to cater a special event at the Doris Duke Shangri-la property as part of the International Film Festival in Hawaii. The night was in honor of Independent film maker Garin Nugroho one of the premier Film Directors from Indonesia.
The 90 people attending were a diverse group including Indonesians, Hawaiians and people from mainland USA.
We served Indonesian signature dishes including Manadonese food.

We are so grateful for all the positive feedback we received. Especially from people who tasted Manado-style Indonesian food for the first time!
