For the Milan's World's Fair 2015, renowned chef Massimo Bottura 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 also tells the stories 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.
