I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but this Nova Scotian film about bread-making and the bonds it creates astounded me.
Going into Bread in the Bones, I felt it was a duty watch because of the N.S. ties. Within five minutes, I was absolutely entranced.
Darrell Varga — who here is director, cinematographer and editor — has created a hilarious, stunning, beautifully-shot film that sent me into a state of childish amazement.
The way cultures and people interact, grow and love over rising yeast is told in such a unique, bold way it was impossible not to love this movie. The stories Varga captures and the very human, lovely people he interviews are so incredibly interesting.
Whether he’s discussing sex and death, immigration, art, or a slew of other things, bread is the centrepiece for it all, and this documentary is fascinating because of it.
