FULL FRAME ’10: D.A. Pennebaker on “Pastry” opening the fest – Hollywood In Ten

BY SEAN O’CONNELL

HollywoodNews.com’s interview feature, “Hollywood In Ten,” showcases the creative individuals responsible for the movies we love, and corners them for 10 quality minutes.

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, N.C., gets underway Thursday with a handful of screenings throughout the morning and afternoon. Music lovers might want to check out “Thunder Soul,” a SXSW hit about the renowned Kashmere Stage Band, arguably the nation’s best high-school jazz and funk band. “Diary of a Times Square Thief,” by Klaas Bense, sounds intriguing as it recreates life in Manhattan’s famed intersection during the pre-clean-up days of debauchery.

But the fest truly launches Thursday evening when patrons file into the spacious Fletcher Hall for D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus’ “Kings of Pastry,” selected to be this year’s Opening Night film. “Kings” follows three chefs who have put their lives on hold to compete in the prestigious Meilleur Ouvrier de France, or MOF, competition. During the three-day event, the world’s top pastry chefs must craft more than 40 handmade concoctions, baking everything from delicate chocolates adorned with gold foil to towering sculptures of blown sugar encircled with colorful candied ribbon. Only a select few will emerge from the contest as MOFs, earning them the right to wear The Collar, a mark of culinary excellence in the baking community.

As they prepared to open the fest, Pennebaker and Hegedus sat down with us to discuss the importance of Full Frame and the terrors they experienced working on “Kings of Pastry.”
