Synopsis Ten years ago, Jonathan Nossiter, former sommelier, released his documentary Mondovino, analysing the impact of globalization in wines from different regions of the world. He now strikes back with Natural Resistance, an interesting and spontaneous dialogue with four vineyard owners in Tuscany. They ponder upon the new ways to make, sell and drink wine. These businessmen, passionate about their work and tradition, voice many critics, specially towards the organization in charge of issuing the Denomination of Origin labels. Their talks about preserving the craft in today’s wine industry are intertwined with Gian Luca Farinelli’s, director of Bologna Film Archives, comments on today’s preservation of classic movies.
