SPECIAL FEATURE: DOCUMENTARY FOLLOWED BY TASTING. Enrica Cavalli’s engaging documentary chronicles the round-the-world journey of fifteen students of the Food Innovation Program (based in Reggio Emilia), to find out how food is changing. To study the food of the future, writer Nick Difino and director Cavalli followed the students as they traversed cities in ten countries (Boston, Davis, San Francisco, Kyoto, London, Shanghai, Singapore, Tel Aviv, Maastricht, Wageningen, Bologna, the Italian Food Valley and Puglia) to meet and interview people who are "Food Heroes." We live in an ever-growing global community, where what we eat and how we produce affects the whole life of our planet. On one hand, over two billion people have problems accessing good food and on the other, over one billion suffer from obesity. This documentary is a resounding call for a better food system and a more democratic international food policy.

Co-presented by BAIA - Business Association Italy America San Francisco.
