Focaccia Blues

Set in the small town of Altamura (Puglia), Focaccia Blues tells the true story of a traditional bakery that puts a recently opened McDonald's out of business. The mockumentary explores the challenges of preserving local culture and traditions, amidst the crushing tide of globalization.

Part of a series of events linked to Milan's EXPO 2015 "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" [May - October 2015]
