TrustNordisk picks up the sale rights to a documentary about NOMA


From TrustNordisk:

TrustNordisk has picked up the international sales rights for the upcoming feature documentary NOMA MY PERFECT STORM from UK production company Documentree Films and will present a promo for the film at the upcoming Cannes International Film Festival.

In NOMA MY PERFECT STORM we are welcomed into a high paced world of passion, color explosions and food extravaganza, as we follow new Nordic gastronomy frontrunner Rene Redzepi, fighting his way back to the top, reclaiming the title of best restaurant in the world for the fourth time.

Holder of two Michelin stars and the title of best restaurant in the world, Copenhagen based NOMA continues to push the gastronomic boundaries beyond the imaginable, serving everything from ants to fermented cricket and live shrimp.

Director Pierre Deschamps has followed René Redzepi in all aspects of his life over a period of three years, creating a multifaceted portrait of the man behind NOMA.

With automatic access to genius, René Redzepi plays with wilderness and interprets a forgotten edible world into a culinary language we all understand. In his search for belonging, Redzepi, a modern ugly duckling, bullied by his peers, found his home in the no man’s land and transformed into a swan. Noma my perfect storm is a creative journey into the unique mind of René Redzepi.

NOMA MY PERFECT STORM is produced by Etta Thompson Deschamps for Documentree Films in collaboration with Blenkov & Schønnemann Pictures, Good Rolling Films, Copenhagen Film Fund, Øresund Film Commission and Red Rental ApS.
