Theater of Life
Massimo Bottura, one of the world’s greatest chefs, runs a soup kitchen, like no other before it, during Milan’s 2015 World’s Fair. All meals are made from the food wastage of Expo Milan’s pavilions. 60 of the most famous chefs in the world join Massimo in preparing them. The soup kitchen is housed in an abandoned theater converted to a Refectory and decorated with stunning art by Italy’s greatest artists. The film is about the extraordinary encounter at the Refectory between the hungry – refugees, the homeless – and these great chefs. We learn the heartrending story of a few of the hungry, and discover what this extraordinary experience brings to them and the haute cuisine chefs who serve them. A film filled with surprise, profound emotion, beauty and joy.
