Meet the extraordinary soup kitchen in Milan that's taking a stand to keep an unfathomable amount of food waste from being sent to landfills. Founded by world-renowned chef Massimo Bottura, the kitchen fosters a remarkable relationship between the finest haute cuisine chefs in the world and the city’s most disadvantaged groups: refugees, recovering drug addicts and a host of others with nowhere else to go. This visual feast is full of tantalizing culinary creations, while also presenting an intimate portrait of those that dine at the soup kitchen and the struggles they face.

Critical praise:

  • The Gate - “Heartwarming and human in ways few films about food are.”
