Eco-film night! FRESH

WHAT: Eco-film showing - FRESH
WHERE: As usual, Buy the Book Cafe, Rodeo Street (Mr. Pizza Building, 4th Floor), Downtown Daegu
WHEN: Saturday, September 11th, 7:30 PM.
WHO: Anyone who's interested in the science, ethics, or politics of food. Or anyone who wants a smoothie on a hot pre-autumn night.
WHY: Let's talk about that in person .^^ .

Once again thanks to Sandy at Buy the Book Cafe, we're happy to be showing our second eco-film in as many months. This time, the film in question is:

"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.

"Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

Fresh was an official selection of the 2009 Environmental Film Festival and the 2009 Sustainable Living Film Festival.
