Fresh, The Movie

I felt very fortunate to see a premiere screening of the movie Fresh, last night. The filmmaker, Ana Sofia Joanes, says Fresh is, “new thinking about the way we eat”. This perspective comes from examining individuals involved in sustainable farming and food production and the juxtaposition of their methods with those of conventional farming.
The movie featured the inspirational farmers Will Allen, of Growing Power, and Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms. They were in the audience to speak on a panel and answer questions after the movie. As the movie ended, they walked to seats in the front of the theater for the discussion amid a moving and enthusiastic standing ovation.
