"I'm really worried about this industry going down…" SOMM TV has revealed the official trailer for a new documentary film titled Saving the Restaurant, marking the feature debut of cinematographer Andrew Ackerman. This film follows the Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey for the entire pandemic lockdown, as he struggles to fight to keep restaurants alive and keep restaurant employees paid during the last two years of the ongoing pandemic. "This is the story of one of the greatest restaurateur's struggle to save restaurants in America." Featuring appearances by Bobby Stuckey, Danette Stuckey, Dustin Wilson, and Thomas Keller. It's hard to watch anything about the pandemic because we're still in it, and it is still affecting everything around us. But I do sympathize with this issue. Especially because at the end of the day, food IS an essential part of daily life for everyone. Even during a pandemic. And restaurants shouldn't have to suffer this much.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Andrew Ackerman's doc Saving the Restaurant, from Vimeo:
Following Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey for the entire pandemic lockdown, this is one of the greatest restaurateur's struggle to save restaurants in America. The restaurant industry employs 16 million jobs in America and is considered a cornerstone profession in our economy. Not since the Great Depression has a challenge hit an industry of this size so hard. From closing restaurants to battling Congress, this is the untold story of America's service industry fighting for survival. Saving the Restaurant, otherwise known as The Food Runner, is directed by doc filmmaker Andrew Ackerman, a cinematographer now making his feature directorial debut with this film project. It's produced by Nadine Nettmann and Jason Wise. This hasn't premiered at any festivals or elsewhere before, as far as we know. Ackerman's Saving the Restaurant will debut streaming on SOMM TV starting February 15th, 2022 this winter. Anyone interested in this?
