MASTERS OF RICE
A grain with many faces
Rice is one of the most widely consumed staple food. It may look like a deceptively simple grain but requires grueling work to grow, harvest, and process.
This film takes us on a rice journey deeply rooted in Asia where we discover local customs around this "common" grain: in Thailand, people massage their babies with rice milk; Japan produces wine from it to create the famous sake; in India, farmers grow the Navara, a very original variety with a unique taste and medicinal virtues.
