The Talking Bread
The Talking Bread is a six-part story created by Kieran Jack for Halftone Productions. Talking Bread follows the story of an experimental loaf of bread thrown into a Melbourne laneway. Unbeknownst to the people who discarded the Bread, it is actually a sentient, sapient group of bread slices with their own personality.
