Screening: KING GEORGES at Full Frame Theater

August 21, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

KING GEORGES is coming to Durham for a one-night-only screening at the Full Frame Theater at the American Tobacco Campus! This screening is part of Full Frame’s Third Friday Film Series, a program of The Full Frame Road Show presented by PNC. Third Friday screenings are free and open to the public, but attendees must reserve a ticket via Eventbrite starting at 9am on the morning of the screening to attend. Seating is limited. There will be a last minute line at the venue to accommodate any last minute cancellations/no-shows. Le Bec-Fin is closing its doors. This film follows fiery owner and head chef Georges Perrier over the last four years of life at the restaurant, granting us ample access inside the belly of the beast. In stark contrast to the orchestrated perfection of its dining room, Le Bec-Fin¿s kitchen is a constant circus of sweaty chaos and emotions, with Perrier as ringleader. He screams, he swears, he hovers obsessively over his sauces, tossing in dollops of heavy cream and large nobs of butter whenever backs are turned. But even as the intensity of the job, and its 21-hour workdays, takes its toll, Perrier struggles with his decision to relinquish control. More than just a vivid character study of a dedicated and passionate perfectionist, King Georges is a touching tribute.
