2018 LA Film Festival: World Premiere of FUNKE

12:20 AM


World Premiere in LA Muse at the 2018 LA Film Festival September 26 at 8:00 p.m.

A film by Gabriel Taraboulsy

Featuring Evan Funke, Janet Zuccarini, Alessandra Spisni, Nancy Silverton, Lee Hefter, Jon Shook, Vinny Dotolo, and Farley Elliott 

Evan Funke was one of the hottest young chefs in Los Angeles when he inexplicably walked away from his critically-acclaimed and wildly popular restaurant, Bucato, leaving behind him a wake of financial and personal upheaval. 

Years later, as Evan begins mounting his comeback, he reconnects with his maestra, a profound pasta teacher in Bologna, Italy and partners with a Canadian restaurant group on its first venture in the U.S. 

Eyeing one of the most competitive and expensive streets in America as a stage for the dying art of handmade pasta, he battles many obstacles on the road to opening a restaurant that he hopes will become his legacy and repair the mistakes of his past.

In his feature debut, director Gabriel Taraboulsy gives equal measure to the artistry and passion that are crucial in the kitchen. Produced with two-time James Beard award-winning media brand Tastemade, "FUNKE" pairs gorgeous imagery that practically smells delicious with the very human drama of success and failure while navigating the notoriously difficult LA restaurant scene.

"FUNKE" is directed by Gabriel Taraboulsy. 

The film is produced by Gabriel Taraboulsy, Alexander Emanuele, Jay Holzer, and Cecile Murias, and is executively produced by Larry Fitzgibbon, Oren Katzeff, Steven Kydd, and Joe Perez. Cinematography is by Rob Vroom and Gareth Paul Cox and editing is by Alexander Emanuele.
