Hoezo in KINO

We know Tony Bourdain, sunglasses on, nursing a cold beverage on a street vendor’s plastic terrace in a faraway metropolis, living The Life. The chef turned writer turned culinary traveller communicated in his own unique way the joy he felt sitting down with strangers and friends alike to share a meal. As a champion of the common man, Bourdain could devour a deep-fried treat wrapped in old newspapers with the same reverence as a three Michelin star dish. His sudden death in 2018 revealed a struggle with depression and this documentary brings his public and private persona together to find the man behind the image(s). A heartfelt ode to a life lived fully, even when it ended too soon.

Storyline

Academy Award-winning documentarian Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom) reveals how Anthony Bourdain went from chef at an obscure New York restaurant to one of the most notorious and beloved figures in the food world and beyond. Following Bourdain from the legendary New York dive bar Siberia to a perfect lunch in Provence with Michelin-starred chef Éric Ripert, Roadrunner traces the singular trajectory of Bourdain’s career as a bestselling author, world traveler and Emmy-winning television writer and producer. A nuanced portrait of a complex, contradictory and charismatic storyteller, Roadrunner is a fitting tribute to the man who reinvented cultural storytelling–and himself–over and over again.
