Kings of Pastry
POV Season 24
Feature Film | 06/20/2011 | 90 Mins

When Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker, award-winning filmmakers of The War Room, Startup.com and Dont Look Back, turn their sights on the competition for the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, the country's Nobel Prize for pastry, you're in for a treat. In Kings of Pastry, 16 chefs, including Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of Chicago's French Pastry School, whip up the most gorgeous, delectable, gravity-defying concoctions and edge-of-your-seat drama as they deliver their spun-sugar desserts to the display table. The inevitable disasters and successes prove both poignant and hilarious. An Official Selection of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
