Enter to WIN, 2 tickets to the Film KING OF PASTRY.
December 17-19 + 22-23
Pacific Cinémathèque, 1131 Howe Street, Vancouver
Kings of Pastry takes audiences into France’s prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (Best Craftsmen of France), an intense, high-stakes pastry competition that “combines the skills of a baker, the vision of an abstract artist and the hands of a bomb diffusion team” (San Francisco Chronicle). Pacific Cinémathèque presents the Vancouver Premiere and Exclusive First Run of this never-before-filmed test of France’s finest artisans, revealed by documentary veterans D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hedegus, makers of The War Room and Dont Look Back.
This is nothing less than the Olympics of pastry. The film follows several elite pastry chefs as they embark on an intense, remarkably nerve-wracking three days of mixing, piping, sculpting, and sugaring. The blue, white and red striped collar worn on the jackets of the winners is more than the ultimate recognition for every pastry chef — it is a dream and an obsession.
