FRESH 2009 (72min)
Produced and Directed by: ana Sofia joanes
FRESH is more than a film; it is a reflection of a rising movement of people and communities who are re-inventing our food system. FRESH celebrates the food architects who offer a practical vision of a new food paradigm and consumer access to it. Encouraging individuals to take matters into their own hands, FRESH is a guide that empowers people to take an array of actions as energetic as planting urban gardens and creating warm composts from food waste, and as simple as buying locally-grown products and preserving seasonal produce to eat later in the year.
In a year long collaboration with the Rosamond Gifford Foundation, ArtRage Gallery will screen six films depicting community efforts to improve their communities and the world. The fall series of three films focusing on food issues will begin in September and run thru November 2012. Films were selected by a committee of community members and are shown twice at different days and times followed by a facilitated discussion. All films are free to the public. No reservation is required.
Partnering organizations for the fall “What If…” Film Series: Alchemical Nursery, Bread and Roses Collective, Eat to Live Food Cooperative: The Southside Food Co-op Project, Slow Food CNY, Syracuse Grows, Syracuse Real Food Co-op.
