DINER, an American Institution

A documentary feature film exploring the history and success of the American Diner and how immigrants from all over the world, working as chefs, waiters, busboys, and kitchen staff contributed to the ingenuity that made the Diner an Institution in America.

This documentary will follow the history of the Diner from its early beginnings as a horse drawn food cart serving factory workers at night, through its evolution to stationery structures resembling railcars with electricity and open all night, through the streamlined art deco silver diners of the 1930’s to the current large scale modern restaurants they are today.
