    Berkeley-based independent filmmaker Bill Kinder began his career in documentary, news, and sports, with a focus on editing and creating experimental nonfiction films. He then worked at American Zoetrope and later Pixar, where he was founding director of editorial and post-production from 1996 to 2014.

In this winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film, a rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great chef—despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the world of Paris upside down. “As ever with Pixar, there’s the sense that a complex world has been beautifully and minutely imagined from the inside out, one where it is clear the filmmakers have done their homework. . . . The entire production is a captivating visual delight” (Justin Chang, Variety).
