Slow Food Story (2013)
An interesting film about a sparking Italian politician, who industrialized the protection of local gastronomic values.
I've seen the film at the CinemaTavolara movie fiesta in Sardegna, Italy. It is about the life and carrier of Carlo Petrini and his undoubtedly devotion to "il cibo", the food, but peculiarly to slow food. In the '70s when the fast food chains stretched over their tentacles into Europe and the world out of the USA, lots of people started losing his connection of traditional meals, preferring the quick and not too healthy hamburgers and others instead of sitting down and doing the ritual of eating. Carlo Petrini, the emblematic figure of the Italian socialists, took the problem seriously and fought against it in articles, speeches and other forms until he arrived to form the Slow Food Movement which is helping in and embracing farmers in about 140 countries around the world to grow and sell their products to customers. This film is a perfect interpretation of the hard work what Carlo Petrini and his co-workers and successors are doing under the umbrella of the movement.
