Hot Docs 17 – NEWS CHEFS ON THE BLOCK

Screening Times: Sat, Apr 29 @ 9:45pm, Sun, Apr 30 @ 4pm, Sat, May 6 @ 4pm

Think starting your own restaurant is easy? Think again. Nearly 30 per cent of new restaurants fail within the first year, and most are risky investments that rely on borrowing from banks and unquestioned commitment from friends and family. Filmmaker Dustin Harrison-Atlas’s debut feature chronicles the roller-coaster ride of two young chefs in Washington, D.C., as they tackle opening their first restaurants. From design to demolition to opening night, Atlas serves up a multi-year portrait of chefs Aaron Silverman of Rose’s Luxury and Frank Linn of Frankly…Pizza! In the digital age where the difference between a two-star and three-star rating can make or break you, New Chefs on the Block is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at two dedicated chefs where one becomes the most famous new restaurant in America and the other redefines his definition of success. – Ravi Srinivasan
