A new documentary about the charismatic chef, writer and TV documentary host Anthony Bourdain will go on general release on 16 July 2021.

Distributed by Focus Features and directed by Oscar-winner Morgan Neville, the documentary promises an “intimate, unflinching look” at Bourdain’s life and legacy. It intersperses interviews with Bourdain’s friends and fellow chefs David Chang and Eric Ripert with unseen archival footage and uses Bourdain’s own voiceover for narration.

Bourdain took his own life in June 2018. He had initially found fame with his frank confessional of a chef’s life, Kitchen Confidential, published in 2000. This led to him fronting a series of engaging and compelling TV shows: A Cook’s Tour which ran from 2002- 2003, No Reservations from 2005-2012 and finally Parts Unknown which ran from 2013 until his death.
