Please join fellow food lovers for a convivial evening of drinks, food, films, and conversation in the first of three film nights for the Summer of 2015: the film “The Slow Food Story” preceded by a few captivating shorts.


The Slow Food movement is the subject of the new documentary from director Stefano Sardo.

Slow Food Story (which might just as easily be titled Petrini Story) chronicles the evolution of the organization through its charismatic leader, Carlo Petrini, from its beginnings in the small Piedmonte town of Bra to a worldwide network of 170 chapters in 150 countries.

The film’s journey takes us from Petrini’s roots with Radio Free Europe through the Italian wine crisis in the mid-1980s when methanol additives poisoned people, to the founding of Terra Madre (Mother Earth) in 2004. Despite some illness, the patriarch Petrini never rests in his quest, in his passionate pleas to counteract the destructive effects of fast food and a fast life. More than any other single person, he has promoted the cause of food in Europe; Time Magazine dubbed him ‘Innovator’ in their 2004 list of European heroes.
