FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur's 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, the Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

All films will have some engagement with the audience and each other. This is not a typical "just show a film and have people walk out" like in a traditional theater. This is A way for people to engage, ask questions, get answers, answer with answers from others who have questions. At times we will have "experts" in a specific area to answer questions, i.e. farmers, poultry experts, fisher people, etc...... There are also other groups and organizations that can and do cosponsor these films to gain wider appeal, attention AND sometimes we even have food and beer (and wine) to make it a very festive event, combining entertainment with education!

Loved the book "The Omnivore's Dilemma" very inspiring, it will be great to "see" the farmer subjects discuss more completely the philosophy that they use.

I want to see this film. I'm in the process of converting my backyard and I am still indecisive as to how much I want to convert to food production and how much to drought tolerant plants.
