Fresh: A Digestible Documentary About Food

Rural Intelligence FoodFresh, which screens this Sunday at the Moviehouse in Millerton as part of their free FilmWorks Forum series, is not just another “ain’t it awful” documentary about the villainous food industry.  More upbeat and folksy than the recent Food Inc., Fresh, makes quick and fair-minded work of the problem (agri-business), then focuses on solutions and the modern-day folk heroes, such as the ingenious Virginia farmer Joel Salatin (left), who are inventing them.  These farmers are the Davy Crocketts and Daniel Boones of our day, visionaries who have perceived a new frontier and have devoted their lives to forging healthier, more sustainable, and practical alternatives to Big Food.

Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion with some of our own local heroes, Hudson Valley farm and food leaders, including David Haight, New York Director of American Farmland Trust, Winter Sun Farms’ Jim Hyland, and Great Performances/Katchkie Farm‘s Liz Neumark,     

Sunday, April 18, 11:30 a.m.
