VICTORIA FILM FESTIVAL INTERVIEW: THEATER OF LIFE DIRECTOR PETER SVATEK
by Jason Whyte
""What fascinated me was the meeting of two worlds that don't fit together at all. The most elite cuisine; the best chefs in the world, Massimo Bottura leading the way, and Europe's most desperate and hungry. The Refettorio fed some of Milan's many homeless and refugees from Africa and the Middle East; the heart the migrant crisis. Most had never heard of any of the famous chefs. Would they care? Would it mean more than free soup kitchen meal? But the philosophy of the Refettorio was different. There were no lineups. Food was served restaurant-style by volunteers. It became a home-like environment. The same guests returned every day. Relationships were formed. So the question arises...what is "home" for a homeless person or a political refugee? These are the questions the film tackles. I wanted to go deeper and humanize the story. Truly get to know the people the Refettorio fed as well as the chefs. To see the ethical questions through their eyes as much the chef. The film is, I hope, a moving, human, compassionate look at all that." Director Peter Svatek on THEATER OF LIFE which screens at the Victoria Film Festival." (more)
