David Baksh Creates Magic In The Kitchen
Director David Baksh has delivered a compelling series of three films for the Beyond Food Foundation. This charity focuses on helping homeless people find a way out of poverty by training them for jobs in the hospitality industry; one of the very few left where you can start at the bottom washing dishes and rise to the top, with your name and Michelin star above the door. As such, it’s been a much-needed second chance for many.
The project was conceived, written, directed and edited by David. Produced initially with a micro crew, just David, his DOP and a runner, then once lockdown started just David by himself.
The first two films, Heat and Pressure, are being released on the Aviva Community Fund as part of a crowdfunding initiative. The final film, Leftovers, will be released later in the year.
