Reel Food is a unique convening that brings together nonfiction media-makers telling powerful stories about food and agriculture with non-profit organizations and foundations working for healthy, just and sustainable communities.
For tonight’s event, we will screen What's On Your Plate?, a witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics produced and directed by award-winning Catherine Gund. Filmed over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas.
We'll also screen the trailer for Jessica Oreck's feature work-in-progress, Pipe Fire, which presents one year in the life of traditional reindeer herders in Finnish Lapland and illuminates an unfamiliar bond between man and nature.
After the screenings, Mary Jeys, the outreach coordinator for What's On Your Plate?, will be in attendance with director Catherine Gund to share the film’s trailer and an education module and talk about the campaign’s impact. Jessica Oreck, producer/writer/director of Pipe Fire, will also join us to discuss her experience with her work-in-progress project.
Part of the series Story Leads to Action, co-presented with Chicken and Egg Pictures and Working Films.
Hosted by Working Films, the Fledgling Fund and Chicken & Egg Pictures.
