It’s about respect for everything – not only nature, but also workers and customers.19:00 Fri 06 March, 2015 @ Ballymaloe-Grainstore
A former sommelier, Nossiter’s Mondovino, a documentary about the globalization of the wine industry was nominated for the Palme D’Or in Cannes in 2004, one of only three documentaries ever nominated in the history of the festival. He didn’t foresee returning to the topic until last summer when he found himself in Tuscany, seated with Italian winemakers dedicated to resisting the prevalent use of chemicals. Nossiter instinctively turned on his camera and continued to follow these subjects against the sun-kissed backdrop of Italian vineyards. These protagonists of a rapidly spreading European natural wine revolution exemplify the movement’s ecological and cultural ideals, one winemaker says, “It’s about respect for everything” — not only nature, but also workers and customers.
This special screening is followed by an Italian inspired rustic feast paired with wines from the growers featured in the film and music from French raconteur Christophe Rohr on accordion with Zac Gvi on clarinet. more details and how to book: log on to The 26tCork French Film Festival website
