*ON THE MENU: A SECOND CHANCE*
Knife Skills follows the hectic launch of Edwins Leadership and Restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. In this improbable setting, with its mouthwatering dishes and its arcane French vocabulary, we discover the challenges of men and women finding their way after their release. We come to know three trainees intimately, as well as the restaurant’s founder, who is also dogged by his past.
They all have something to prove, and all struggle to launch new lives — an endeavor as pressured and perilous as the ambitious restaurant launch of which they are a part.
Join us for a screening of this powerful film followed by a panel discussion featuring SF’s CALA restaurant, whose hiring practices are also giving second chances to formerly incarcerated people.
