It’s time to reconnect with our food and the planet over some hot soup and some wonderful new films on food issues. We’ll revisit drawbacks of industrial farming, the food crisis and highlight the bright solutions taking shape around the globe. Discuss the latest updates on new and old food campaigns, plus you’ll be given the opportunity to take some action of your own through letter writing, petitions, postcards and maybe a visit to the supermarket or a bit of local digging! Friends of the Earth Real Food Campaign.
‘Fresh’ celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing their food system. Progressing from the industrial model, food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity to forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
Screening Tue 4 Aug 6.30pm
‘Homegrown‘ follows the Dervaes family who run a small organic farm in the heart of urban Pasadena, California. While living “off the grid”, they harvest over 2,700 kilograms of produce on less than a quarter of an acre, make their own bio diesel, and power their computers with the help of solar panels.
