Documentary on the passion of chefs and their restaurants
Opens November 8, 2013 in Bay Area

The Film Arcade presents SPINNING PLATES, opening on November 8, 2013, at Landmark’s Opera Plaza Cinemas in San Francisco, and Landmark’s Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley.

You don't have to be a foodie to thoroughly enjoy SPINNING PLATES, a fascinating documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who make them what they are. These amazing restaurants and their stirring stories include an upscale, cutting-edge restaurant in Chicago named the seventh-best in the world whose chef must battle a life-threatening obstacle to pursue his passion; a 150-year-old family restaurant in Balltown, Iowa that's still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community; and a fledgling Mexican restaurant in Tucson, Arizona whose owners are risking everything just to survive and provide for their young daughter. These unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another. It’s a celebration of the art and passion of nurturing people, not just feeding them.

Filmmaker Joseph Levy is writer, director, producer and editor of SPINNING PLATES. Levy gained reputation for producing the highly acclaimed short film George Lucas In Love, and he has created, written, produced and directed numerous series, pilots and specials for television networks. He produced the independent feature film Last Man Running, and produced and directed the reality/documentary series “Into The Fire” for the Food Network.

"SPINNING PLATES is a foodie phantasmagoria and something more. On one level a series of mini-docs on a trio of wildly different eating establishments, it becomes a group portrait of the restaurant business as well as an involving look at personal dramas that go well beyond the kitchen.” – LA Times

“Foodies are almost certain to be nourished by SPINNING PLATES, a surprisingly personal and moving documentary about three very different types of restaurants” – Chicago Sun-Times

“SPINNING PLATES fulfills the highest function of a documentary — or any film — it is irreversibly consciousness-raising.” - Eater
"SPINNING PLATES is out to prove that no matter how fancy or bare bones a kitchen is, running a restaurant takes a special kind of family." - Entertainment Weekly

“SPINNING PLATES enjoyably profiles a disparate trio of U.S. eateries ranging from the loftiest emporium of gastronomical innovation to the humblest mom-and-pop operation." – Variety
