OCEAN CITY BUFFET  features restaurant owner Lily

her son Andy & a few worker-relatives inside the now permanently closed

 Ocean City Buffet  as they give the filmmakers a preview

of their everyday, morning preparation, plus brief insights into

how Lily & her family had opened and maintained Ocean City

Buffet eighteen years prior to the shooting of this film.

 

accompanied by a few friends, shot in 3 days & over

the course of one main dinner, during the same week

of pop-singer Whitney Houston's untimely passing,

Ocean City Buffet  sparked the filmmakers' docufictional query

into the buffet as a quintessentially Amerikkkan food culture
