Abstract:

Traditional foods are at risk of disappearing forever, as a speed-obsessed world turns increasingly to fast foods. To counter this trend, there is an international gastro-economic movement known as Slow Food. Its aim is to protect traditional culture, the environment and biodiversity by encouraging regional food production. The movement is now active in 45 countries. This film travels around the globe to record this phenomenon. Italy is the home of the Slow Food movement and there is a revival of growing such regional foods as Bronte pistachios, Sorrento lemons and the original Neopolitan tomatoes. Towns, like Orvieto, have declared themselves to be "slow cities," free of fast food outlets, neon and noise. In Mexico indigenous farming communities have revived ancient ways, cultivating vanilla beans and the nutritious amaranth. In Australia there is an increasing interest in Aboriginal knowledge of native "bush tucker" and a school program reconnects children to the land and its riches. The Botanical Ark in Queensland grows endangered food from all over the world, saving plants from extinction. Beautifully photographed, Slow Food Revolution is a celebration of the sustainability, seasonality and quality of the earth s bounty.
