O Milagre do Pão (2007)

O Milagre do Pão, is a 52 minutes long documentary about the human adventure, that crosses time and space and connects men in search of an imagined future. It creates a dialogue between the universal history of bread and its technologies (grinders, mills, ovens and stoves); the history of Italian immigration to southern Brazil; and the creation, today, of a Windmill Path, with the recovery of the Mill of Ilópolis and the invention of a bread museum and of a pastry school.

With filmed images, rare archive material, statements by Manuela Carneiro da Cunha and Cleodes Piazza Ribeiro, among others, the documentary is divided into three autonomous and interconnected blocks: Pão de Milênios, Itália Brasil and A Tradição do Novo.
