A Fine Line

Sponsored by The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County

When Joanna James began working on the film, it was going to be about her mother’s journey as chef/owner of Val’s Restaurant in Holden, Mass. But when Joanna learned that less than 7 percent of chef-restaurant owners are women, the movie morphed into a larger investigation of gender inequality. World-renowned female chefs are “stirred into” the central narrative focusing on Val. This personal story helps advance the national dialogue on issues of gender inequality, the challenges of balancing motherhood and career, and how inequity in the kitchen is not the only place in which it exists. 71 min.
