Fresh from sold-out screenings at the recent Mill Valley Film Festival!


Director Matteo Troncone will be in attendance for a Q&A following the movie!


From the Bay Area to Italy, Matteo Troncone searches for the meaning of life in this engaging, intimate documentary. Is it any surprise to discover that pizza is the answer?


Writer, director, cinematographer, editor, and star Troncone begins his fascinating and philosophical first-person travelogue with no job, no relationship, and no home.


While living in his VW van on the streets of Mill Valley, he decides there is only one thing to do: trace his roots to Naples and learn the secret of Neapolitan pizza.


Once there, he discovers the art of arrangiarsi, the process of arranging yourself to make something from nothing. We meet a colorful crew of characters, from street artists to pizza makers, who find a way to live and love in the most joyful ways, regardless of circumstance.


This delightful documentary combines a healthy smattering of foodie passion, intense Italian history, and quirky Neapolitans to tell the tale of one man’s journey to find himself...and the greatest pizza on earth.
