Film Screening and Discussion: “Knife Skills”

6:00pm - 8:00pm
Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Hall
Room 104
435 W 116th St, New York, NY


Knife Skills focuses on the launch of Edwins restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. The high-class French restaurant is staffed almost entirely by men and women just out of prison. Most have never cooked or served before, and have barely two months to learn their trade. In this improbable setting, we discover the challenges of men and women finding their way after their release.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion featuring:
Thomas Lennon – Director of Knife Skills, journalist, Academy Award-winning filmmaker
Sharon Richardson – Founder and CEO of Just Soul Catering
Paul Keefe – Supervising Attorney, Law Enforcement Bureau, New York City Commission on Human Rights
Rev. Daiken Nelson – Founder & Tenzo of Mandala Café/Mandala Kitchens
