A wordless animated poem about how bread is made.

The film can also be watched here.




The title can be translated in more then one way.: The world of Bread, (A or The)daylight of bread, (A)Light on bread. I am not a born Russian speaker, but what would be the best translation, in the light of the animations intention, and given the fact that the title has more then one meaning? As wel as that A & the don't exist in the Russian Language?

>The world of Bread
Yes, that's possible. Although "Мир хлеба" might be more obvious if this was the main meaning that was meant.

>(A or The)daylight of bread
No, "свет" just means "light", not "daylight" (дневной свет).

>(A)Light on bread
No, that would be "свет на хлебе", whereas "свет хлеба"="the light of bread" or "The Bread's Light" (the title I chose).
