First Look: A Teen Prodigy Deals With Fame in 'Chef Flynn' (Exclusive)

The doc will debut at the Sundance Film Festival.

Flynn McGarry began his culinary career throwing dinner parties at the age of 10 in his living room. A few years later, he relocated into some of the most famous kitchens in the world before he could legally drive a car.

He has worked at Alinea in Chicago and Eleven Madison Park in New York, among other renowned eateries, and has headed his own pop-ups in New York. 

The teenage gourmet has already graced the cover of the New York Times Magazine and now, at 19, finds himself as the subject of a documentary, titled Chef Flynn, which tracks his beginnings and everything that follows a meteoric rise.

In a first look from Chef Flynn, McGarry and his mom are seen grappling with the sudden fame in very different ways.  

Cameron Yates directed the doc, which was produced by Iris filmmaker Laura Coxson, and will premiere in the Documentary Premieres section at the Sundance Film Festival.
