"American food is in a state of crisis. Health, food costs and our environment are all in jeopardy. A movement to put good food back on the table is emerging. What began 30 years ago with chefs demanding better flavor, has inspired consumers to seek relationships with nearby farmers. This is local food."
An official selection of twelve film festivals around the world, "Ingredients" is a must-see documentary for anyone interested rebuilding the connection between farms and food. The film is narrated by Bebe Neuwirth, and features such food visionaries as Alice Waters, of Chez Panisse, and Gary Paul Nabhan, of Renewing America's Food Traditions.
See "Ingredients" this Thursday, July 29, at the Coolidge Theater in Brookline. The show starts at 7pm, and you can buy your tickets online in advance.
"Ingredients," directed by Robert Bates, produced by Brian Kimmel and Debra Sohm Lawson
