MDFF: Short Session 7

Until Further Notice
By Tiffany Hsiung
Five months into lockdown. “Zoom” has become a verb, as millions continue to socially distance and self-isolate. Unemployed top Toronto chef Luke Donato logs into Zoom 10 minutes early to prepare for the weekly interactive cooking class he teaches. For over 18 years Donato’s identity has been shaped by the bustling restaurant industry. But what happens when what you know and identify with is suddenly taken away? Until Further Notice is a story about identity, purpose and the power of our collective experience, told by Donato and his amateur chefs — friends, family and strangers from different time zones and cultural backgrounds.
