Infamous restaurant rater Michelin Guide is getting its own feature length documentary in Michelin Stars: Tales From the Kitchen. Danish filmmaker Rasmus Dinesen sits down with some of the industry’s most notable figures — Daniel Humm, René Redzepi, Alain Ducasse, Guy Savoy, Andoni Luis Aduriz, and ten other renowned chefs and big-time food critics to hear why the Michelin-star became the pinnacle of culinary excellence.

Earning a one-star rating is already an accomplishment but reaching three is an achievement worthy of being put on a pedestal. The trailer shows footage of the guide’s director of business, Michael Ellis, calling the restaurants to tell them their star rankings on Michelin day. It intends to delve into the “dark flip side of the shiny coin” that comes with Michelin’s effect. The film will premiere worldwide on September 23, during the San Sebastián Film Festival.
