A popular bakery in Toronto will soon be streaming a movie about donuts
When no one is going to cinemas, how should you screen your new documentary about LA's donut king? Why, by partnering with local donut shops to stream it, of course.
The documentary tells the rags to riches story of Cambodian immigrant Ted Ngoy's legendary multi-million-dollar donut empire in Los Angeles.
Miss going to the movies? Us too! Will you join us in a screening? THE DONUT KING comes to virtual cinema on Nov 19th. The unlikely story of a Cambodian refugee arriving in America in 1975 and building a multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favourite pastry: the donut. Follow @films_we_like for up to date info on the screening & @thedonutkingfilm for trailer.
Directed by Alice Gu, The Donut King won Special Jury Recognition for Achievement in Documentary Storytelling at SXSW 2020.
From Nov. 19 to Dec. 31, the film is available to stream virtually for $9.99, and can also be accessed in partnership with other local donut shops in Calgary, Halifax, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Saskatoon.
Each purchase of a stream also supports Glory Hole, and goes towards sustaining programming and reopening efforts at participating indie theatres.
