In the restaurant business, hard work doesn’t always pay off. Nearly 50% of restaurants fail in their first year, while 60% don’t even make it to their second year. Two chefs—Frank Linn of Frankly…Pizza! and Aaron Silverman of Rose’s Luxury—with blind determination and even slimmer odds, struggle to open and maintain their first restaurants in Washington, DC. In parallel development, these two young ambitious chefs with very different personalities and restaurant styles reveal the journeys and the hardships of bringing their visions to life. Construction delays, skyrocketing costs, rookie mistakes, and the growing pains of new restaurants push both chefs to the brink. Who will make it? NEW CHEFS ON THE BLOCK delivers a nitty-gritty real-life look into the adversities, pressures, and enormous rewards of opening a restaurant. Featuring legendary chefs and restaurateurs Danny Meyer, Michel Richard, Mike Isabella, and Washington Post food writer Tim Carman.

Part eco-doc, part food film, BUGS begs the question: how tasty can a queen termite really be?  This gorgeous film features two intrepid researchers from the Nordic Food Lab, who travel the world in search of exquisite insect flavors. Not only do they seek cultures in Australia, Kenya, Uganda, Italy, Japan, and more that feast on crawly things, they work to create haute cuisine from local maggots and bees. And young chef Ben Reade and food-science researcher Josh Evans eat it all. The founders of the world-renowned Danish Restaurant NOMA created the Nordic Food Lab as a “non-profit, self-governed, open-source institution that investigates food diversity and deliciousness.” These young missionaries are as concerned with sustainability and economics as with good food, which makes BUGS a beautiful, insightful, worldwide investigation into the complicated promise of protein from insects.
