Dear Bookers & Programmers:

There is so much going on now in the world, a lot of it tough to read about every day. So to take our minds off it all for a little while at least, here's a new doc that is for foodies and food-lovers alike - a bit of culinary escapism though not without some drama and tension thrown in.

A Chef's Voyage opens September 18 on Virtual Cinema, and we'd love to have you on board with it! The trailer really gives a great sense of it, though I'm also happy to send a screening link as well.  Merci!

Opens September 18

A Chef's Voyage follows the celebrated American Chef David Kinch and his team from Manresa, their 3 Star Michelin restaurant in California, for a one-of-a-kind collaboration with three legendary French chefs at their iconic restaurants in Paris, Provence, and Marseille.

To mark the 15th anniversary of Manresa, Kinch decides to close shop for a month so he and his staff can embark on their France voyage. Planning the trip takes months; to represent the refined Californian cuisine of Manresa, the team must bring their own seasonings, sauces that take days to make, and lots of abalone. But the logistics are tricky: how to sneak the food on flights; unfamiliar host kitchens; a language barrier and more.

A Chef's Voyage takes us behind the scenes as the Manresa crew attempts to stage nine major meals over 10 days in the world’s most cinematic venues, alongside culinary superstars, with the world watching (and tasting) - all to celebrate 15 years of Manresa excellence by doing what Chef Kinch and his team do best: creating meals and experiences worthy of those three stars.
"This culinary doc basks in sumptuous food shots, takes you behind the scenes into buzzing French kitchens and offers stunning scenes of differing French landscapes. But its true heart rests with the chef and his team who set out on an odyssey - packing underwear and abalone - to discover the love of creating and enjoying culinary creations."
- Bryan Alexander, USA Today

"A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of one of America’s upper-echelon restaurants - and a tour through the heart of bucolic Provence, bustling Paris, and the gorgeous coastline of Marseille."  - Elizabeth Brownfield, Forbes

"A mesmerizing documentary…a hot soundtrack…the food’s so beautiful you will salivate." - Christina Waters, GoodTimes

"Part rock doc, part Chef's Table!"
- Atlanta Journal Constitution

"A landmark of New Queer Cinema and the first feature film directed by a Black lesbian. With biting humor and a sharp eye towards hidden histories, the film deftly captures the search for identity and how we, in turn, preserve and share history, from the stories told by our selves, families, and communities, to those produced by Hollywood and culture writ large."

The film is as beautifully composed as Uzzle's pictures...a subtle feast of light and color."  - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
