Bread: An Everyday Miracle 

Knowing most people have been doing their own sourdough starters during the shutdown, we wished to highlight a new film which we will be releasing EXCLUSIVELY (both virtually and in cinemas where available) come July 10th called BREAD: AN EVERYDAY MIRACLE.

This film will change your view of BREAD!

No other food plays such a fundamental role in our culture, but do we actually know what we’re eating every day? Harald Friedl’s new documentary BREAD: AN EVERYDAY MIRACLE takes a look at the traditional art of bread baking, brought back to life by passionate artisan bakers, and explores how big corporations are using state-of-the-art technology to add aroma and taste to their industrial bread. But most of all, it shows what makes bread so special and how it reflects the social, health and environmental conditions in our society.

A seemingly simple basic foodstuff has developed into a luxury food item which is fast approaching cult status. New organic bakers are popping up all over the country, but most of us still buy our daily bread and pastries at supermarkets, which mainly stock industrially produced baked goods. And very few of us know what is in our bread – and how good it can actually taste.
