THE DONUT KING premiered at SXSW 2020 and received a Special Jury Recognition for Achievement in Documentary Storytelling. THE DONUT KING follows the story of Cambodian-American businessman Ted Ngoy. Ted’s story is one of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.
