Hungry Filmmakers Offers a Sneak Peek at Six Fresh Films that Challenge the Food System

Hungry Filmmakers- An Evening of Films About Food
December 15, 2009
Anthology Film Archives
32 2nd Ave
New York, NY 10003
Doors open at 7:00pm. Screenings begin promptly at 7:30pm.

Hungry Filmmakers describes the innovative documentarians whose films dig into the agricultural quandaries facing our society today. Excerpts from six upcoming, food-oriented films will be featured on December 15, 2009 at Anthology Film Archives, followed by a lively Q & A and panel discussion moderated by food activist and author Anna Lappé. An After Party with hors d’oeuvres from local and sustainably-minded food and beverage purveyors will follow at nearby Good Beer Seal bar, Jimmy’s No. 43.

These six films offer unique perspectives and arguments on food, agriculture and eating more healthfully. Through these filmmakers’ efforts, the public has access to fascinating, real-life documents about this pivotal era in the “food movement.” Combined, the screenings reveal visions of hope and a shared mission to improve our food system and provide a perfect segue for further discussion.

The films:
BIG RIVER and TRUCK FARM Curt Ellis & Ian Cheney
THE GREENHORNS Severine von Tscarner Fleming
GROWN IN DETROIT Manfred & Mascha Poppenk
FACES FROM THE NEW FARM Liz Thylander, Kat Shiffler & Lara Sheets

At 9:00pm, the party will move to Jimmy’s No 43, located at 43 E. 7th St. Snacks from local purveyors including Flying Pigs Farm, Schoolhouse Kitchen, Blue Isle Oyster Company, Hot Bread Kitchen, Violet Hill Farm, 3-Corner Field Farm, Rick’s Picks, Dancing Ewe Farm and more will be served. The bar will feature specials on Ommegang Beer of Cooperstown, NY. A full dinner menu and craft beer menu will also be available. Jimmy’s No. 43 is a bar and restaurant that is committed to supporting the local arts and sustainable food communities. Awarded “Best Bar with Good Food” by New York Magazine, “Favorite NY Pubs” by Forbes and a “Snail of Approval” for its use of local, farm-sourced ingredients from Slow Food NYC, Jimmy’s No. 43 hosts many events and fundraisers, and founded the Good Beer Seal bar community.

Anthology Film Archives is an international center for the preservation, study and exhibition of film and video with a particular focus on American avant-garde cinema.

Hungry Filmmakers is an event hosted by Anthology Film Archives and Jimmy’s No. 43, curated by food writer Cathy Erway and filmmaker Shelley Rogers.
