In 1971, classified ads for employment were still segregated by gender, battered women’s shelters did not exist, abortion was illegal, and married women couldn’t open a bank account without their husband’s permission. LEFT ON PEARL is about the movement that changed all that.

This feature-length documentary explores why only 6% of head chefs/restaurant owners are women, when traditionally women have always held the central role in the kitchen. The perspectives and experiences from world renowned chefs, including: World’s Best Female Chef Dominique Crenn, Time Magazine’s 1 of the Most Influential People Barbara Lynch, 3 Michelin Star Chef Elena Arzak, Emmy Award Nominated Chef Lidia Bastianich, World’s Best Chef Daniel Humm and many more are told in this compelling doc. Tying it all together is the personal story of a small town restaurateur with a larger than life personality, Valerie James. A single mother on a mission to do what she loves while raising two kids and the odds stacked mightily high against her. An inspiring success story on perseverance, family and food.
