Director Pang was familiar with Toronto since he lived in Scarborough when he was a kid. He is now a food writer at the Chicago Tribune and For Grace was supposed to be a short profile piece on Chef Duffy's new restaurant but it turned into a whole lot more.
|Chef Curtis Duffy|
Chef Duffy is a highly regarded American Chef who overcame many personal challenges to achieve his dream of being a Top chef.
I decided to shoot a bit of video and used my still camera so the sound you hear is the water feature in the garden near where we were standing. And I should have packed my tripod because this camera doesn't seem to stabilize the way my video camera does.
But it was a pleasure meeting Chef Duffy and Director Pang as I really loved their film when I saw it at Hot Docs.
Here's is a bit of the interview we did.
