Bread in the bones

McGuire, Shana

Stories of work and play, of love and loss... and bread. Bread has been at the center of human life and creativity for at least the last ten thousand years - it is in our bones and a witness to history. This essay documentary brings bread to the front of the line and explores its relation to politics, poetry, and pleasure. The loaf of bread is the vehicle through which we explore stories of sex and death, immigration and refugees, social justice and the counter-culture, and of art, work and pleasure. Love it or hate it, everyone has a relationship with bread. This simple staple food is brought to life by the wild energy of yeast, perhaps our first companion animal, and is a metaphor of transformation that mirrors life itself. And it is the only metaphor you can eat. Shot in Canada, the US, and throughout Europe, this is a beautiful and profound journey into a subject that has come to have an important meaning in our times.
