Is there anything more intoxicating than the smell of fresh bread wafting through a room in the morning? Bread: An Everyday Miracle takes us on an enlightening journey into the world of bread and its production today. We meet traditional artisan bakers and cereal farmers who can vouch for quality and sustainable ingredients.
“The film builds a natural progression towards the deeper questions embedded within the choice between buying one’s bread from the local baker or from the commercial aisle at the grocery store. Bread surveys a handful of European bakeries and laboratories and includes the Viennese organic bakery Öfferl where bakers young and old give Friedl a tour of their operations. Georg Öfferl and Lukas Uhl, standing in for the young generation of bread-lovers who go wild for wholesome unprocessed loaves, demonstrate the power of their secret ingredient, a 20-year-old starter they call the old mother dough that provides the scrumptious base for their loaves.” – Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
