Renowned chef René Redzepi reinvents his Copenhagen restaurant Noma in an attempt to retake the title of best restaurant in the world, but all is not as it seems... 

The 'ugly duckling' of fine dining René Redzepi is the creative genius behind Noma, the Copenhagen restaurant and four time winner of The Best Restaurant in the World Award. This 2015 film by Director Pierre Deschamps tells the story of Redzepi and his quest to reclaim the illustrious title during the most difficult year of his career in an intimate portrait of the man himself and a unique insight into the world of new Nordic haute cuisine.

The film will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with the film's Director Pierre Deschamps and Producer Etta Thompson Deschamps.

Running Time 1 hour 40 mins, the film has no certificate but has some scenes that may not be considered suitable for those aged under 15.

“An enchanting insight into Redzepi’s culinary universe.”
