BREAD IN THE BONES

Canada (2020), 72 min.

Directed by Darrell Varga

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. It is a metaphor of transformation that mirrors life itself.

And it is the only metaphor you can eat. Shot in Canada, the US, Europe, Bulgaria also this is a fun journey into a subject that has come to have profound meaning in our strange times.
