One of Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini's favorite film will be screened at the Delancey Street Theater on April 4th. Benedito Batista da Silva, 60 years old, is considered a reference when it comes to manioc flour production in the Brazilian Para State, deep within the Amazon. This documentary shows his trip from Braganca to Turin and back home. The encounter of different cultures, of small-scale farmers from all over the world and the enchantment of coming into contact with European culture blends with the profound affective bond Mr. Bene forges with his Italian host family. The film is about breaking barriers, whether cultural, economical or even physical, in this amazing anthropological adventure whose premise is that hope still exists for small Brazilian farmers.

Produced by Slow Food Rio leader Teresa Corcao. Slow Food Rio leaders Teresa Corcao and Margarida Nogueira will be present for the screening.
