2019 FILM: FUNKE
2019 Film Selection: Funke
Gab Taraboulsy’s feature documentary debut profiles renowned pasta chef Evan Funke of Los Angeles’ Felix Trattoria.
Evan Funke was one of the hottest young chefs in Los Angeles when he inexplicably walked away from his critically-acclaimed and wildly popular restaurant, Bucato, leaving behind him a wake of financial and personal upheaval. Years later, as Evan begins mounting his comeback, he reconnects with his maestra, a profound pasta teacher in Bologna, Italy and partners with a Canadian restaurant group on its first venture in the U.S. Eyeing one of the most competitive and expensive streets in America as a stage for the dying art of handmade pasta, he battles many obstacles on the road to opening a restaurant that he hopes will become his legacy and repair the mistakes of his past.
