LIF - Mondovino film screening at The Reliance
LIF16 - Mondovino film screening
"A knowledgeable, behind-the-scenes look at the politics of modern winemaking and the secrets of the international wine trade. Film maker Jonathan Nossiter, who previously trained as a sommelier, traverses countries and continents asking the question: 'Has wine creation has grown too commercial?' His argument is that producers and critics are cynically colluding to enforce a bland, mass-produced taste on a world of wine drinkers, who will basically like what they are told to like because they don't know any different. What emerges though, is a poignant look at some of the important issues affecting the production of all modern food and drink, including deforestation, globalisation and the battles of tradition versus innovation and big corporations versus the small independent company. This film is also one of only four documentaries ever nominated for the Palme d'Or in the entire history of the Cannes Film Festival. Strongly recommended documentary film for all genuine wine enthusiasts! "
