Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. We’re off to San Francisco at 10.10 to talk to Chef Matt Dolan, live from his restaurant Twenty Five Lusk. He’s a world class chef by night and secret dumpling fiend by day, so that’s what’s on the menu today. After 11 it’s all about Hong Kong’s one and only science fiction conference, Melon 2019: Aliens on the Galactic Silk Road. We welcome the founder Fritz Demopoulos and special guest Robbie Stamp, who is the Executive Producer of the movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. At 11.40 we find out about an upcoming dance performance with quite a difference. “Sidestepped: A Dance for Selective Amnesia” is a collaboration between Butoh choreographer Masami Yurabe and renowned British cellist Oliver Coates. Both of them join us in the studio this morning. After 12 James Marsh is back again with this week’s movie review. Joining James today will be film maker Alexandre Philippe, whose new documentary "Memory: The Origins of Alien" plays tonight at the Hong Kong International Film Festival. We'll be on Facebook Live.

Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew. We'll kick off at 9.40 this morning with a quick trip to Brazil, where we find our friend The Radio Vagabond, Palle Bo. He's making his way around the world one interview at a time, and today he's in São Paulo. All our Chefs are busy cheffing this morning, so we'll give the food bit a break between courses. So, at 10.10 we meet photographer Nana Chen who's beautiful new book "Chung King Mansions: Hong Kong's Last Ghetto" launches tomorrow. At 11.10 we welcome Dr. Badisha Banerjee from The Education University of Hong Kong to tell us about a great literary project she’s running. It’s called One City One Book HK. The idea is to get as many people as possible here reading a single book during a fixed period of time. After 12 we’re off to the movies with reviewer James Marsh, discussing Green Book and Creed II.
