Manna Man Trailer


Authorship: Alex Healey

A portrait of Giulio Gelardi, a producer of Manna, a specialty product produced as purely as possible by traditionalists like Gelardi in the area around Castelbuono and Pollino and sold to herbalist shops with the support and encouragement of the Slow Food movement, which believes that keeping the tradition alive will preserve the ash groves, the local environment and local culture.


"Manna Man" belongs to the "Unique Trades" collection, a set of short documentaries depicting obsessions and trades on the fringe of existence. These intimate portraits capture committed individuals, striving undeterred in their obsolete worlds.

Produced by Fabrica

Directed by Alex Healey
