Directed by Academy Award winner, Rayka Zehtabchi, A Woman's Place is a short documentary film that captures the stories of three chefs, their careers, and their shared experience as women in the culinary industry facing and overcoming institutionalized sexism. As each address the bias, the harassment, the comments they've had to endure, we see how each chef has carved out a place for themselves in the industry - not as a female chef, but as a restaurateur, a chef de cuisine, and a butcher respectively. A Woman's Place is a film about the power of playing by your own rules even when the game is stacked against you.
