Brendan Canty's Trixie Films to Produce "The Liberation", A Film About DC Central Kitchen


Trixie Films directors Brendan Canty (Fugazi) and Christoph Green are looking for backing via a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming film, The Liberation -- a documentary about two students who are going through the culinary job training program at DC Central Kitchen.

"DC Central Kitchen, two blocks from the US Capitol building, and in the basement of one of the largest shelters in America, is a revolutionary culinary training program that actively goes out searching for the people that need their help the most. People who have hit rock bottom, and are truly ready to turn their lives around. Over 14 weeks, DC Central Kitchen teaches them how to get along with others, how to get along with themselves, and how to cut and cook, serve and cater, and ultimately gain access to the nicest restaurants in DC."

"Full employment is the goal of the program, but along the way there are plenty who don't make it. Drug tests, old habits and, self destruction are always the elephant in the room."

"Join us as we follow 2 or 3 people through this program. It will change the way you view your city."

"I know it has done so for us." --Brendan Canty and Christoph Green
