No one expects to open their first dream restaurant during a global pandemic. No Place Like Kasama is a short documentary (37 mins) following chefs Genie Kwon and Tim Flores in real time as they open their lifelong dream — a neighborhood bakery/cafe — in the face of a global pandemic. Today, Kasama has become one of Chicago’s most beloved spots, and is now the first Filipino restaurant in the US to win a Michelin star.
This is the film’s Chicago premiere. There will be a short Q&A with Tim Flores and Genie Kwon moderated by Director Kerri Pang after the screening.
