Summary
‘Slow Food’ emerged with the spread of fast food. It was a statement about globalization and the way our world was heading. We wanted the documentary to explore the origins, the philosophy and some of the people, whose work and achievements are at the core of ‘Slow Food’. ‘Slow Food’, reminds us to not only enjoy our food, but also appreciate it! To stop for a moment and think... where did it come from? ‘Slow Food’ fights globalization; it aims to strengthen and maintain biodiversity; and it calls for people of the world to protect their environment and preserve their traditions. The next time you pick up your forks and knives, or chopsticks, I hope the film lingers on your taste-buds long enough for you to stop and think about the "Revolution". I sincerely hope you enjoy the film.
Speed- the obsession of the modern world- is determining what people should eat and how. Traditional foods are at risk of disappearing forever. An international eco-gastronomic movement known as ‘Slow Food’, champions the protection of traditional culture, environment and biodiversity while encouraging regional production, food education and pleasure. Slow Food Revolution travels around the globe recording this growing phenomenon. Beautifully photographed, it is a celebration of our natural bounty- a seriously sensual journey from earth to table.
