Hungry Filmmakers III is Tonight

posted in: Events, NYC Events | 2

Get ready to see the films, eat some local food and maybe be inspired to make either at tonight’s roundup of food documentaries, Hungry Filmmakers. It’s the third event for this series, where we invite the filmmakers, a distinguished moderator and the community to see a sampling of recent and upcoming films. Following a ten-minute screening of each one, a panel discussion will further explore the topics covered in them. We’re so proud that this time, the moderator for the panel will be Paula Crossfield, editor of Civil Eats. And that the films are…

The Bering Sea: An Ecosystem in Crisis
by Michael Graziano and Melissa Thompson

Vanishing of the Bees
by George Langworthy and Maryam Henein

The Farmer and The Horse
by Jared Flesher

Lunch Line
by Uji Films (Ernie Park and Michael Graziano)

Pressure Cooker
by Jennifer Grausman and Mark Becker

You Are What You Eat
by Ginalola Lowry

So that’s our menu: we’ll start off with a little-known environmental catastrophe (The Bering Sea) and colony collapse disorder (The Vanishing of the Bees), and end with teens finding success through cooking (Pressure Cooker) and a lighthearted look at the age-old idiom about food and identity (You Are What You Eat). Along the way, we’ll tackle the hot topic of school lunch reform (Lunch Line) and one man’s solution to farming more sustainably: with draft horses (The Farmer and the Horse). All told, it should be one really fun ride.

So join us as we introduce these films, and meet the filmmakers, too, tonight at Anthology Film Archives. Tickets are available for advance purchase online, and it’s the same price of $15 at the door (get there soon, as it may sell out!). Any proceeds from the evening, as usual, will be donated straight to our friends at Just Food. Hope to see you!
