Pelican Bomb hosts a screening of Chasing Dreams followed by a community conversation at the New Orleans Culinary and Hospitality Institute.
As a part of the programming for the "Foodways" exhibition, Pelican Bomb will screen the critically acclaimed short film, Chasing Dreams, by filmmaker William Sabourin O'Reilly. The film is a 27-minute glimpse into the life of New Orleans chef Leah Chase. Following the film, Pelican Bomb will invite Mrs. Chase to participate in a public conversation with local artist Willie Birch. The conversation will touch on the important contributions that Mrs. Chase and Dooky Chase’s Restaurant have made to New Orleans food, arts, and culture.
Attendees are invited to bring one canned food item for donation.
