Florent Wants Us to Live in the Now


Tickets are still available to Thursday’s premiere of Florent: Queen of the Meat Market at the NYC Food Film Festival. In addition to the film, your $75 admission entitles you “to taste a selection of original menu items.” But don’t expect titular subject Florent Morellet to join your nostalgic weeping for the supposed good old days — he doesn’t participate in what he considers “the whine of middle-class, white people,” reports the Daily News. “I didn’t move here from bum-fuck France to live in a city that has to be frozen at the bottom of its depression.” Watch the trailer below.
