This delectable documentary chronicles the arc of celebrated Chicago chef Carlos Gaytán’s incredible life journey: After emigrating to the U.S. from a humble home in the mountains of Guerrero at age 20, he worked his way up to assisting chef Dominique Tougne at Lincoln Park’s Chez Moi. Against all odds, Gaytán opened his own restaurant, Mexique, and became the first Latin American chef to receive a coveted Michelin star.

Gary Borgstedt laughs when he recalls the time when a boyfriend, during a messy breakup, told him that he (Gary) was autistic. Decades later another boyfriend, during yet another breakup, accused Gary of having ADD. Gary admits that he has always been sort of a "space cadet" and that his head is often in the clouds. This is especially true when he is working on his art.
Gary crafts his abstractions in his studio by arranging pieces of fabric on his work table and studio wall and then photographing them. No canvas, no painting, no paper, no drawing. Just strategically-placed pieces of fabric and camera manipulations. He transforms his literal subject matter from something that is unequivocally "what it is" into something that is completely open to interpretation. His viewers are encouraged to suspend reality and engage with the ambiguity... to dream.
