Chef Bottura – Theater of Life

E se il cibo sprecato potesse nutrire tutti gli affamati del mondo?

Un film che appaga gli occhi, l’appetito e lo spirito.  Theater of Life è un documentario sul Refettorio Ambrosiano, la mensa creata da Massimo Bottura durante Expo 2015 per rispondere a una domanda tanto semplice quanto necessaria: “E se il cibo sprecato potesse nutrire tutti gli affamati del mondo?”. L’avventura di Bottura è stata ripresa dal regista Peter Svatek, che ha documentato l’esperienza al Refettorio di chef come René Redzepi, Daniel Humm, Virgilio Martinez e Alain Ducasse. Tutti loro – e moltissimi altri – hanno aiutato Bottura a cucinare per i senzatetto e i bisognosi delle periferie di Milano.


What if food waste could feed the hungry?

Theater of Life is a documentary about the Refettorio Ambrosiano, an extraordinary soup kitchen conceived by renowned chef Massimo Bottura during the Milan 2015 World’s Fair. Massimo invited 60 of the world’s best chefs to join him to cook for refugees and the homeless of Milan. All meals were made from the waste food of Expo. In an extraordinary soup kitchen in Milan, two vastly different worlds have been brought together by a unique social experiment. Theater of Life captures the remarkable relationship forged between the finest haute cuisine chefs in the world and the city’s most disadvantaged groups: refugees, recovering drug addicts, former sex workers, and a host of others with no place else to go. For Expo Milano 2015, renowned chef Massimo Bottura, whose Osteria Francescana was named world’s best restaurant in 2016, invited 60 of his international confrères to join him in transforming food destined for the dumpster into delicious and nutritious meals for Italy’s hungriest residents. But the documentary delves far deeper than this important food story: it captures the moving encounters of guests at the soup kitchen who have found a welcoming community there, showing us glimpses of their heart and soul in the process. A visual feast in itself, Theater of Life puts a human face on its powerful message of social justice while raising awareness about the enormous environmental impact of food waste.
