CHEF ANTONIO'S RECIPES FOR REVOLUTION LIVESTREAM DIRECTOR Q&A with Special Guest's
A delicious, feel good story with heart, soul & a big serve of laughter. Join us on from 3:30pm for a special livestream Q&A screening with director Trevor Graham with live-in cinema special guests (TBA) following the 4.00pm session. Trevor Graham talks about how this extraordinary film came about and the inspirational people involved in it's making. Trevor Graham would like audiences to ask one significant question about the film: ‘What does ‘normal’ mean?’ and by "removing the boxes we humans tend to place people in, this is the first priority of the film. This is very much the take away theme from the film."
Chef Antonio de Benedetto is on a quest, to change the world with his delicious Italian food. His apprentices are Mirko Piras, a young man born with Down syndrome, who dreams of becoming a great chef ‘just like Antonio’ and Jessica Berta, an ambitious waitress who’s also set her sights on a career among the pots and pans. Their tiny kitchen is the beating heart of a revolutionary restaurant and hotel like no other. Both are staffed by young men and women living with Down syndrome who come from across Italy to train and work in hospitality, so they can take their place at the table of life. Chef Antonio’s Recipes for Revolution, is their closely observed story, told in first person by Antonio, Mirko and Jessica. It’s a journey through their lives and loves, dreams and dramas.
