Roadside Nabs "How To Cook Your Life"

Indiewire By Indiewire | Indiewire February 14, 2007 at 6:38AM

Roadside Attractions has acquired North American rights to "How To Cook Your Life," a new English-language, American-set documentary by German filmmaker Dorris Dorrie. The film, which debuted earlier this week at the Berlin International Film Festival, will be quickly released in U.S. theaters this Spring/Summer. Calling the film, "a food movie and a new age movie," Roadside co-president Howard Cohen told indieWIRE that he and co-president Eric d'Arbeloff will target audiences interested in new age/spirituality (similar to their approach in releasing "What The Bleep Do We Know?!," which earned about $11 million in theaters). In the documentary, chef Edward Brown demonstrates, in the words of the Berlinale catalog, "that food means much more than just nutrition and that cooking is a feast of the senses, as well as an act of love and generosity." Celebrating food and cooking, Dorrie captures Chef Brown's international lectures at Buddhist centers, while also exploring issues facing food and farming. Roadside co-president d'Arbeloff negotiated the deal with Atrix Films, acquiring the film after its first screening in Berlin. Cohen told indieWIRE that they will likely re-title the doc, "How to Cook Your Life: A Zen Master on the Art of Eating Well." [Eugene Hernandez]
