Another of this year’s visiting featured filmmakers is Joseph Levy, producer of Spinning Plates, a remarkable documentary featuring three distinctly different restaurants – Michelin’s 7th best in the world, whose chefs surmount unbelievable challenges, a 150-year-old family restaurant in Iowa saved by its community, and a fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are doing all they can to survive.
