For many people, bread is an indispensable part of everyday life and is associated with cultural identity and well-being. But with no other food image and reality diverge so far, because very few people know how bread is made today and what it really is.
The documentary Schönes neues Brot takes this contradiction to the starting point and shows the current situation of bread-making in all its diversity tangible.
Schönes neues Brot is a cinematic journey into the fascinating world of bread: a world that has long been marked by the loss of bakers, but also by impressive resistance and the growing awareness in the population. Even if differences in quality are not obvious at first glance, they are nevertheless present and of enormous ecological, ethical and health significance.
