For the Milan's World's Fair 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 waste from the Expo into flavourful, nutritious meals for refugees, the homeless, and the impoverished, in a respectful environment – the Refettorio Ambrosiano. THEATER OF LIFE tells this important food story – and tells the stories some of the diners at the Refettorio Ambrosiano, showing us glimpses into their hearts and souls. A visual feast in itself, this film offers, in its powerful vision of social justice and awareness of food waste, a glimpse of a more equitable world.
