San Francisco Premiere

Renowned chef Massimo Bottura - patron of the world's best restaurant and featured on Netflix's Chef's Table - turns his hand to creating an extraordinary soup kitchen. Bringing together 60 of the world's best chefs, he caters for the refugees and the homeless of Milan.

In Theater of Life the guests are as important as the famous chefs. Sharing the daily lives and struggles of the people eating there, we get an insight not only into the difficulties of accessing good food but their personal journeys and ambitions. There's an interesting twist, all the meals were made from waste food.

World-class chefs including Mario Batali, Rene Redzepi and Alain Ducasse, craft gourmet meals from trash and prove that everyone deserves delicious and nutritious food. - Gemma Bradshaw
