Interview with Ana Sofia Joanes, director of the new film Fresh.
The newly released film Fresh once again uncovers the dangers of monoculture farming and consolidated animal feeding operations. Nature has fought began fighting back and it is becoming evident that industrializing our food system was a bad bad idea. But can we abandon it and if we could how would we ever be able to feed ourselves.
Ana's film isn't Malthusian doomsdaying, it is quite the opposite. Fresh meets with sustainbale and organic farmers who are making a difference, farmers who have solutions. The solutions they offer make environmental sense while at the same time making economic sense.
I purchased the movie Fresh for a personal home screening where I invited fifteen people from my community for an evening of good food and an important documentary. You can do the same thing in your community.
