The film highlights Slow Food in Canada activities from coast to coast, expressing the diversity of the landscape and foodscape of Canada. The central themes of respect for the land, food sovereignty and Slow Food’s central tenents of Good, Clean, Fair food for all are captured in this vivid and inspiring 15 minute HD film.
“The opportunity to see different examples of Canadian volunteers and activists at work — Canadians who are so passionate and dedicated to, as Carlo Petrini says, linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment — is documented here, like never before, for all us to embrace and applaud with great pride”, says Voula Halliday, Co-Chair of Slow Food Canada.
