Gathered together in the Italian sunshine, a handful of wine growers and the director of a Cineteca share their passion for wine and cinema.
En quelques années, des agriculteurs libres ont transformé la conception du vin ainsi que son marché en produisant un vin dit « naturel ». Par goût de la liberté, de la transmission, de l’honnêteté artisanale et de la santé de la planète (et de ses habitants), ils sont entrés en résistance. Contre la tyrannie du marché et des gouvernements qui le servent. Over the past few years, these wine growers have transformed the concept of wine, along with its market, by producing what's known as "natural" wine. Their desire for freedom, passing down knowledge, honest traditions and the planet's (and its inhabitants') health has led them to resist - against the tyranny of the market and the governments that assist it.
Stefano Bellotti, the Pasolini of the vines (a poet and rebel!), in Piedmont, and Elena and Anna Pantaleoni, two generations of women from Emiglia Romana, imagine again, often with irony, how to challenge. Joined by Corrado Dottori in the Marches and Giovanna Tiezzi in Tuscany, they all set out looking for the next battle.
But an ecological commitment to nature serves no purpose if there isn't also a cultural ecology. Like wine, the vital transmission and the anti-establishment role of film culture are also threatened with extinction.
Ten years after Mondovino, Jonathan Nossiter sets out on a journey to Italy to meet these resistants, these people who pass on life.
