Gala Screening: El Somni w/People & Plates
What do you do when your restaurant is famous, your dishes are famous, and the brains behind the operation are famous? You make a movie describing the how and the why of that fame. In El Somni, viewers become diners in a dream that explores how a group of people push their own limits, and the limits of food.
