Since he was in single-digits, Jack Yonover has been interested in filmmaking. 

To get his passion rolling, the 12-year-old Wilmette resident recently decided to film a documentary about food allergies, a topic very sensitive to Yonover, who has a tree nut allergy.

After being diagnosed allergic to pistachios and cashews, Yonover said he discovered many people aren’t familiar with the allergy, which is why he wants to educate the public through his film titled “That Bites.”
