Knife Skills, an Oscar-nominated documentary, focuses on the launch of Edwins restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. The high-class French restaurant is staffed almost entirely by men and women just out of prison. Most have never cooked or served before, and have barely two months to learn their trade. In this improbable setting, we discover the challenges of men and women finding their way after their release.
RSVP below and join us for a light dinner and refreshments from ChiChi’s Kitchen (6:00 PM), a screening of the film (6:30 PM), and a panel discussion (7:15 PM) moderated by Judy De La Cruz, The Fortune Society’s Manager of Training Programs in Employment Services, featuring:
Thomas Lennon – Director of Knife Skills
Sharon Richardson – Founder and CEO of Just Soul Catering
Paul Keefe – Supervising Attorney, Law Enforcement Bureau, New York City Commission on Human Rights
Rev. Daiken Nelson – Founder & Tenzo of Mandala Café/Mandala Kitchens
