A feature-length documentary about the last days of M on the Bund, Shanghai's ground-breaking fine-dining restaurant. Coming soon, check out the trailer.
In late 2021, M on the Bund announced it would be closing its doors after twenty-three years. The restaurant led the fine-dining renaissance in Shanghai, with its maverick flare, daring simplicity and personal touch. Along the way, it grew a community of diners and artists, reinvigorated a neighbourhood, and defied the odds to outlive its competitors and imitators. In a city defined by change and rapid reinvention, it had become an institution. Over the course of two months, from the closure announcement to the final day, we follow the team behind M on the Bund as they navigate the highs and lows of a restaurant in its final days, uncovering the memories, legacy and community it leaves in its wake.
