As a chef and entrepreneur, whose collection of restaurants includes the double-Michelin-starred minibar, José Andrés is renowned for his innovative small plate, avant garde approach to fine dining. He is also a humanitarian, the founder of the World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit dedicated to feeding survivors in the wake of natural disasters and other catastrophes. Helmed by acclaimed director Ron Howard, this uplifting documentary traces the humble beginning of Andrés’s endeavors and reveals the profound impact he and his talented band of volunteers have in bringing relief to dire situations. Based on the simple premise that even during crises, people have a right to food security, clean water, and good meals, Andrés, and his team shine a bright light during the darkest of times.
