The Twin Cities Natural Food Co-ops – together with the Birchwood Café, the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, Land Stewardship Project and Bryant-Lake Bowl – are honored to present two nights of Fresh, a new film by Ana Sofia Joanes. The film will be shown on Tuesday, June 2 at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m., at the Bryant-Lake Bowl and Wednesday, June 3 at 7 p.m., at the Riverview Theater.
Fresh features farmers, activists and others, who are re-inventing our food system, and includes interviews with Will Allen, Joel Salatin and Michael Pollan. 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.
An engaging panel discussion on reforming the Twin Cities food system will take place before the second screening at the Bryant-Lake Bowl and follow the screening at the Riverview.
Get your tickets in advance ($10) online. Or you can purchase them at the Birchwood. They’ll also be available at the door ($15 each), while supplies last.
