01 Barolo Boys

64'- A documentary by Paolo Casalis & Tiziano Gaia With subtitles in English/Spanish/Italian/Japanese The story of a group of friends, the "rebel boys" who made Barolo become the best wine in the world, filmed in the marvellous scenery of Langhe hills, Italy. SYNOPSIS For the first time on the big screen, Barolo Boys. The Story of a Revolution tells the fascinating story of Barolo wine and how it exploded as a world phenomenon. Now one of the most famous red wines in the world, 30 years ago Barolo was unknown even in its own production region, the beautiful Langhe (just nominated UNESCO World Heritage Site), in northwestern Italy. Barolo’s current success is mainly due to the courage and initiative of a group of small-scale wine producers, the so-called Barolo Boys. In the optimistic Eighties, these winemakers upset the quiet world of the Piedmontese countryside and brought about a revolution in Italian wine, igniting a fierce controversy between different generations and different ways of thinking. After almost 30 years, what is left of that experience? As one of the film’s characters asks, what revolution has ever been successful? Barolo Boys. The Story of a Revolution traces the short but intense trajectory of a group of producers who indelibly changed the world of wine. With (among the others): Elio Altare, Chiara Boschis, Marco de Grazia, Giorgio Rivetti, Roberto Voerzio With the special participation of: Carlo Petrini, founder and president of Slow Food Oscar Farinetti, president of Eataly Joe Bastianich, narrator voice, for the first time on the big screen ________________________________________________________ Winner of Most Film Festival 2015, Spain Winner of DOC Wine Travel Food Prize 2014 Official Selection Vancouver Film Festival 2015 Official Selection Seminci - Valladolid International Film Festival, 2015 Official Selection Festival de Cine de Paracho, Mexico 2015 Official Selection Food Film Festival Bergamo 2015 Official Selection Viva Festival Sarajevo 2015 Official Selection Italian Contemporary Film Festival, Toronto Canada 2015 Official Selection Euganea Film Festival 2015 Official Selection Lake Como Film Festival 2015 Official Selection Feast Food & Film Victoria, Canada 2015 Official Selection Wine Country Film Festival 2014 Official Selection Festival Internacional de Cinema Documental e Transmedia, Rios - Portugal, 2015 Official Selection Piemonte Movie Glocal Film Festival, 2015 Official Selection Overlook Festival, Rome, 2014 Official Selection Kinookus Festival, Croatia, 2014 Official Selection Corto e Fieno Festival, 2014
