About the film:

The legendary restaurant elBulli was sparked from the minds of Ferran and Albert Adrià, two brothers from a poor suburb of Barcelona. Ferran is the name most people know; younger brother Albert, who had reluctantly started working with his brother at age 15, with no culinary aspirations, has long remained in Ferran’s shadow. He is now considered by many to be the most underrated chef in the world. This new documentary focuses on this self-proclaimed outsider in the midst of a hugely ambitious creative adventure: to build a gastronomic empire in a crumbling theater district in Barcelona. (Directed by Laura Collado and Jim Loomis, 82 min).
