Pizza is truly one of humanity’s greatest achievements. Not only is it delicious, but as documentary filmmaker Matteo Troncone discovers, pizza also paves the path to enlightenment. Troncone was living out of his van on the streets of San Francisco when he decided to trace his roots to Naples, and take a deep dive into the history of Neapolitan pizza. There, he discovers “arrangiarsi,” or “the process of arranging yourself to make something from nothing,” which somehow involves eating pizza every day and embracing joy. Hungry yet?
Tonight’s screening is sponsored by Settebello. Ticket holders will get $5 Margherita pizzas next door after the film.
