Lúcia Prancha – Bread Story
Bread Story: Some research for an oncoming film, 2019
Based on the script “The Bread-King Learns to Bake Bread” by Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956) and Prancha’s experiences with LA baker Roxana Jullapat. The concurrent narratives of Brecht and Jullapat create the structure for the book and the film.
The book consolidates research into ideas of American labor and production from 1941 to today and functions as an unconventional script for the film in progress. The series of printed materials uses LACA’s Risograph printing technique to mass produce an iteration of the original book in order to disseminate information and participate in a level of production associated with propaganda and consumerism.
