Top of page

In this participatory interactive documentary, artist and social innovator Mariette Sluyter opens the oven door on the practice of making bread. Bread is a web-based project, produced by the National Film Board of Canada. An experiment in human connectivity and interactive storytelling, the project highlights the way bread is a key ingredient of our cultural and emotional wellbeing. It features the unique memories and recipes of six remarkable women from different cultural backgrounds.

Anne Kerekes was born in Hungary in 1926 and immigrated to rural coal-mining community of Wayne, Southern Alberta, at the age of 2. The frontier spirit survives in Anne as she bakes delicious white bread weekly for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
