Food Fight at the Projecting Change Film Festival

A film worth checking out is “FOOD FIGHT”, playing at the Projecting Change Film Festival on Friday, April 3rd at 7:00 p.m. at the Fifth Avenue Cinema.

A brief description of the film: "When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods. But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food system was co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy, sustainably-produced food. Fortunately, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s, where a group of political anti-corporate protesters–led by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse–voiced their dissent by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The unintended result was the birth of a vital local-sustainable-organic food movement that has brought back taste and variety to our tables."
