Bread is a silent-era title discovered buried under the frozen ground in Dawson City, Canada in 1978. One hundred years before #MeToo, Ida May Park, who began her career as a stage actress, wrote and directed this socially-conscious drama about a powerful man abusing his status by sexually assaulting, harassing and exploiting women on the 'casting couch'.
