Hot Docs 15 – FOR GRACE

First Festival Screening – Sunday, April 26th @ 7pm

Curtis Duffy is one of the most renowned chefs in the United States, and is about to embark on his biggest challenge to date: the building and opening of his new restaurant, Grace. But he finds himself amidst one of the worst times in his personal life as he tries to achieve this dream. His dedication and focus on his career have cost him both his marriage and his relationship with his two young daughters. As Duffy tries to figure out the balance between the happiness of his career and home life, he finds himself looking back to his turbulent childhood, where a devastating tragedy led him to find refuge in his quest for excellency in the kitchen, and where the help of a kind economics teacher enabled him to move on from his tragic past and into his current success. From Chicago Tribune dining reporter Kevin Pang and filmmaker Mark Helenowski, For Grace is an insightful look into one man’s search for happiness and excellency.
