BREAD (as food for thought) Poster
The film is a series of interviews with the inhabitants of St. Petersburg (Russia) today, filmed using an amateur video camera, in the genre of Direct cinema.

What is bread? That is the question… The answers are not that simple. We explore this pot pourri of history, sociology and ethnography.

Primarily produced for educational use (for French high school students, especially those studying Russian culture), but with the hope of tempting the interest of their parents as well!
