The tale of a revolution more than 25 years in the making, “Slow Food Story” charts the titular anti-fast food movement led by Carlo Petrini from its inception in 1986, spurred by the opening of a McDonald’s in the heart of historic Rome, to its current global status with members in over 150 countries. This charming documentary follows the slow food movement’s growth under the charismatic leadership of Petrini from his picturesque hometown in Piedmont, Italy, as his lively and vibrant brand of environmental activism earns the cause high-profile supporters, including Alice Waters and Michael Pollen. Sure to speak to the hearts, minds, and stomachs of Michigan foodies, and anyone with a passion for eating well.
