The RAW: almond Documentary is about the pop-up restaurant on the frozen river in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
RAW: almond runs for three weeks on the coldest months in Canada. A number of different chefs handle the menu to serve three seatings each night. The documentary focuses on the founders of RAW: almond, Mandel Hitzer and Joe Kalturnyk, in their second year of running the frozen river restaurant. Anthony Carvalho and I follow Ben Kramer and Aron Epp on a dinner service and Talia Syrie's team during weekend brunches.
Anthony and I started this as a school project for Red River College's Creative Communications program. The project became something we both felt passionate about and wanted to share with the world, while expanding on it with the final cut you see above.
