We are happy to confirm we have acquired the international rights to The Immortal Diana Kennedy.
A Film by Elizabeth Carrol
90' | USA | 2016 | HD
Master Chef, teacher and activist Diana Kennedy has become one of the most celebrated culinary legends of Mexican cuisine but has also been fighting un-apologetically for change in the environment to produce and sustain fresh food for future generations.
The food doc – which is currently shooting and will be finished late next year – is a profile of Kennedy, who is the author of eight cookbooks and a staunch environmentalist. She was decorated with an Order of the Aztec Eagle from the Mexican government in 1982, made a member of the Order of the British Empire in 2002, and was last year inducted into the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame.
“Over the course of her 60 years of research on the cuisines of Mexico, Diana has entertained chefs and diplomats from around the world, including Prince Charles, in her Zitácuaro kitchen, and has mastered the country’s food above all else,”
Diana is a force of nature, living entirely in harmony with it. She designed and built her ecologically sustainable property outside Zitácuaro, Michoacán in 1974, where she continues to cook, recycle rainwater, use solar power, and grow her own vegetables, coffee, and corn. She is a staunch environmentalist, maintaining a collection of plastic bags she’s reused for a decade.
