FRESH, the Movie
Supper (optional), film & post-film discussion
6:00 - 8:30 pm
Friday, January 29
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
6:00 supper (optional); 7:00 film (run time 72 minutes); post-film dialog with food policy experts.
