Theater of Life is about the Refettorio Ambrosiano, an extraordinary soup kitchen conceived by renowned chef Massimo Bottura during the Milan 2015 World’s Fair. Massimo invited 60 of the world’s best chefs to join him to cook for refugees and the homeless of Milan. All meals were made from the waste food of Expo.
For Expo Milano 2015, renowned chef Massimo Bottura, whose Osteria Francescana was named world’s best restaurant in 2016, invited 60 of his international confrères to join him in transforming food destined for the dumpster into delicious and nutritious meals for Italy’s hungriest residents. But the documentary delves far deeper than this important food story: it captures the moving encounters of guests at the soup kitchen who have found a welcoming community there, showing us glimpses of their heart and soul in the process.
A visual feast in itself, Theater of Life puts a human face on its powerful message of social justice while raising awareness about the enormous environmental impact of food waste.

SolarShare is Canada’s largest not-for-profit solar energy co-op. We build commercial-scale solar systems throughout Ontario. Once the systems are completed and generating revenue, we refinance them with community investment—Solar Bonds—from Ontarians like you.
Our co-op membership consists of over 1,275 individuals and organizations who have invested over $21 million in solar installations. SolarShare investors have earned over $1.5 million in interest so far, all while supporting the production of clean, green energy.
By purchasing Solar Bonds, here’s what you’re doing: You’re lending us money so we can repay the construction costs of systems that have already been built and are generating revenue. Solar Bonds allow us to take our renewable energy future into our own hands. Together, we’re changing how energy works in Ontario.
You can buy into clean energy with two Solar Bond options:
- 5-year term, 5% fixed interest per year, principal paid at maturity in 2021, $1,000 minimum (RRSP and TFSA eligible)
- 15-year term, 6% fixed interest per year, self-amortizing, matures in 2031, $10,000 minimum
