Six years in the making, filmed in a dozen countries, this is a poetic essay film on the full range from the pleasures and dangers of overeating to the tragedies of world hunger.. Let Them Eat Cake is not your typical documentary. It is a poetic essay that takes you on a journey through twelve countries, exploring the contrast between pastry making and consumption in various parts of the world. While in some parts of the world those who farm the ingredients for pastries can’t even afford them, in Paris, Tokyo and Los Angeles, lavish pastries adorn the shelves of pastry shops along the streets. Written and directed by award-winning director Alexis Krasilovsky, Let Them Eat Cake addresses the planetary emergency of too little food, while seducing the viewer with the lavish traditions and beauty of pastry and cake-making that call us back to the roots of our childhood..
