A TASTE OF SKY

Directed by Michael Lei
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 85 Minutes International Premiere
FILM GUIDE A TASTE OF SKY
Danish culinary entrepreneur and Noma co-founder Claus Meyer has kickstarted a gastronomic revolution in Bolivia’s capital of La Paz with the opening of Gustu, a fine-dining restaurant and cooking school for the country’s impoverished youth. Kenzo, a hunter raised in the Bolivian Amazon, and Maria Claudia, a native of the Andean altiplano, have resettled in La Paz in order to pursue a career in the culinary arts. Under the tutelage of Meyer, these young Bolivians are working towards a better future as they attempt to establish their country as the world’s next great culinary destination.

This sumptuous documentary is an inspiring story about resilience and mentorship, viewed through the powerful lens of food. More than just a delicious documentary, A Taste Of Sky is a celebration of the art of gastronomy and the importance of paying opportunities forward.
