Sinopsis

After 40 years of running their community arts space, The Bread Factory, Dorothea and Greta are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple–performance artists from China–come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street catapulting big changes in their small town.

Por qué verla

One of the best yet most under-seen American movies of 2018, Patrick Wang’s two-part story is reminiscent of the best of Robert Altman, with its sprawling ensemble cast and wonderfully open-ended storytelling. Full of unexpected warmth, humor, and oddity, it’s a small town drama with huge stakes.

To some extent, Patrick Wang’s dazzling two-part, four-hour comedy A Bread Factory (2018)—shot over twenty-four days in Hudson, New York, after ten days of rehearsal with well over sixty professional or semiprofessional actors—is an epic anthology of performance art. . . . What makes it special are the peculiar dots connecting “inside” and “outside.”

A riveting, one of a kind cinematic experience, an ethnography of a community told with a profoundly compassionate eye that speaks to Frederick Wiseman’s Ex Libris: The New York Public Library and Robert Altman’s A Prairie Home Companion.

Wang finds room for loving, faintly Guffman-esque character sketches (a local actor and critic have feuded for 50 years over a bad review); testimonials to the power of mentorship for preserving continuity; and a most daring gambit in part two in which performance spills over into everyday life as banal encounters take the form of tap routines and choral interludes.
