Spring 2012

Film Screening: FRESH

Wednesday, March 7th 8:00 p.m.
W151 Pappajohn Business Building (PBB)
Free Event - All Are Invited to Attend

Fresh outlines the vicious cycle of our current food production methods, while celebrating the farmers, thinkers and business people around America who are reinventing our food system, from Will Allen, a basketball player and former executive turned urban farmer, to Joel Salatin, a poetic prophet of the fields, who tells us: "We can raise everything we need without any of the industrial food system." Director Ana Joanes takes her camera coast to coast and explores the lives of amazing Americans who are redefining the way we eat and how we live. Both an enlightening documentary and a stirring call to action, FRESH transforms the way we look at food.
