Last night I went with a few students from UNISG to Turin to see the Tupperware film. This documentary charts the history of Tupperware and how it changed many women’s lives throughout the globe. Central to this tale is the unconventional relationship of two unusual charters, Earl Silas Tupper and Brownie Wise. It is a truly amazing story. It was also interesting to see how the spirit and entrepreneurial zeal of Tupperware is embraced and interpreted in Italy. At the end of the film, an Italian Tupperware lady got up and sang one of the songs that demonstrators sing at their rallies and before parties. It was an exceptional anthropological moment.
If you get a chance to see this film, don’t miss it!
