The Heat: A Kitchen (R)evolution

1 Hr. 23 Min.

Screening format: DCP

A food doc tailor-made for the #MeToo movement, The Heat chronicles the challenges faced by female chefs in a traditionally male-dominated industry. While the tight quarters and hot tempers make kitchen work difficult for anyone to survive (let alone thrive), these seven amazing women are breaking down the culinary glass ceiling. Dismantling the macho environment that allows "bad boy" celebrity chefs to succeed while redefining both the industry status quo and the dining experience, these chefs deliver delicious dishes with a side order of empowerment.
