About

This is the story of The Bread Factory, a community arts center in the small town of Checkford, told in two films.

After 40 years of running The Bread Factory, Dorothea and Greta are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple—performance artists from China—come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street catapulting big changes in their small town.

Deceptively tranquil, flawlessly acted, formally subversive” – Steven Mears, Film Comment

Wang is an unusually gifted and criminally undersung talent” – Justin Chang, LA Times

It’s as if Eric Rohmer had made a Christopher Guest film – Waiting for Guffman recast as an ardent inquiry into what small-town American life has become.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
