For Grace is a fantastic documentary showcasing 3 star chef Curtis Duffy of restaurant Grace in Chicago.
He had this tattoo on his left arm which goes,”Grace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom.”
I want to make a film like this. Like Kevin Pang, a journalist turned filmmaker for this film. I want to write like Pang and I think I m already writing like that, although it’s in another language.
When I see how Duffy is now, it really just dawns upon me how sadness makes happiness. How happiness is built on a wound, of pain.
It seemed the more pain, the more beautiful you will turn out to be.
Beauty came from a depth of injury. There can be no other way .
Love this film and this chef. I m a fan!
I want to interview him.

And this, one of my favorite lines from the story m,
“there is no running away from what you are.”
