Film Synopsis:

World famous chef Massimo Bottura tastes the prepared menu. He gives final instructions and the beautiful auditorium of a former theater fills with hot plates. But the guests at table are not the traditional guests of his Michelin restaurant; they are homeless and refugees who sleep in shelters and on the streets of Milan. The ingredients used are just as untraditional, as Massimo uses foodstuffs thrown out at the EXPO Milano that is underway. The evenings, during which 40 chefs from around the world will take it in turns, allow the guests to meet a world they usually cannot enter. However, all are a part of a moment during which it is possible to forget all hardship and enjoy the fleeting beauty of the instant.

Freedom Talk: From waste to plate

Malaysians love food, but they also waste a lot of it - 3,000 tons of food daily to be exact. Whilst most of the food wasted were food that were untouched and still edible there are many who cannot afford and don’t have access to a decent meal each day. This session will feature ordinary Malaysians with exceptionally big hearts who have used their initiatives, skills, and hard work in making use of food waste and converting them into decent meals for the less fortunate members of Malaysian society.
