Theater of Life – Massimo Bottura

BRA-Cinema Impero – Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 211

Can food waste solve the problem of hunger? A question Massimo Bottura tries to find an answer to in Theater of Life. This documentary movie puts the Refettorio Ambrosiano community kitchen project at the center, a socio-culinary experiment launched at the Expo Milan 2015, in order to answer the question in the beginning: What will happen if we use food waste to end hunger? So, the community kitchen project starts. In the extraordinary kitchen of Refettorio Ambrosiano in Milan, Massimo Bottura manages forty of the best chefs in the world: Ferran Adria, Rene Redzepi, Alain Ducasse, Daniel Humm and many others. All the food they serve is recuperated from food waste of the Expo 2015. This film also recounts the engaging stories of many refugees that regularly eat at the Refettorio.
