Synopsis

Cooklyn is what happens when a bunch of drinking buddies are asked to make a cooking show – really an excuse to explore Brooklyn, get into trouble, and talk to normal or famous or homeless people about good food. And drink and cook. Doing the cooking are Matt—who also makes guitars—and Hannah, who’s not a chef but writes about food and makes it look good (as a stylist). Artist/filmmaker Sam sings a little, breaks things, and enjoys making life harder for everyone else. The rest of the cast/crew has made a bunch of critically acclaimed indie films that have never made any money. They’ve also never made a TV show, and it shows.


Featuring: 

Matt Rubendall is a guitar maker in Brooklyn. Sometimes he cooks.
Sam Schonzeit is an artist based in Marfa, Texas. He plays guitar eats sesame sticks, watches Trash Humpers and listens to Ali Farka Toure.  
Hannah Kirshner is Jill of all trades (master of none) in food media—writer, recipe developer, and food stylist. She’s been throwing fabulous dinner parties since she was too young to drink, and travels to Japan as often as possible to study culinary crafts and eat okonomiyaki.
Matt Grady is a film distributor/producer and sometimes releases records. He believes micro-budget movies can change the world. He watches The Decline of Western Civilization, Hal Hartley films and may listen to a bit too much 90's Britpop. He eats too many avocados, loves baked pita chips and always has a freezer full of frozen dumplings.
Bryan Wizemann is a filmmaker. He has directed three feature films including About Sunny which premiered at Toronto and has lots of stars in it. He makes pizza, loves taquillla, and has an unhealthy obsession with the Dardenne Brothers.

Mira Evnine is a New Yorker with a streak of the Bay Area and is equally obsessed with textiles, Monty Python and olive oil on vanilla ice cream. She's happiest cooking and feeding others and is perennially on the hunt for the best taco spot and the most delicious dim sum.
