From Academy Award‐nominated director Sco!
Hamilton Kennedy and narrated by esteemed sci‐
ence communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, "Food
Evolu#on" is set amidst a brutally polarized debate
marked by fear, distrust and confusion: the contro‐
versy surrounding GMOs and food.
Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana
farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, "Food
Evolu#on" wrestles with the emo#ons and the evi‐
dence driving one of the most heated arguments of
our #me. Enlis#ng experts and icons of the struggle
such as Mark Lynas, Alison Van Eenennaam, Jeffrey
Smith, Andrew Kimbrell, Vandana Shiva, Robert
Fraley, Marion Nestle and Bill Nye, as well as farmers
and scien#sts from around the world, this bold and
necessary documentary separates the hype from the
science to unravel the debate around food.

Food City: Feast Of
The Five Boroughs
USA | 2016 | 20 min • Documentary Short
Directors/Producers:
Ma!hew Fleischmann, Lars Fuchs
In the not‐too‐distant past, all food was local.
Hyper‐local, in fact: if you didn’t grow it or find it
yourself, you didn’t eat it. Today our food is hyper‐
global: wherever you are, you can get your food
from any corner of the world. What might a return
to hyper‐localism look like today, now that more
than half the world’s popula#on live in ci#es? In
"Food City", the filmmakers, Ma!hew and Lars
endeavor to find out by challenging themselves to
serve a four‐course meal for eight people — using
only ingredients grown, caught, or foraged from
within the five boroughs of New York City.

The body of a homeless woman is found in an aban‐
doned New Hampshire farmhouse. Beside the
body, lies a diary that documents a journey of star‐
va#on and the loss of sanity, but told with
poignance, beauty, humor, and spirituality.
For nearly four months, Linda Bishop, a prisoner of
her own mind, survived on apples and rain water,
wai#ng for God to save her, during one of the cold‐
est winters on record.
As her story unfolds from different perspec#ves, in‐
cluding her own, we learn about our systemic fail‐
ure to protect those who cannot protect
themselves.

It's 1919 in a small German village in the a&ermath
of World War I. Anna (Paula Beer, in a breakout
performance) is in mourning for the death of her fi‐
ancé, Frantz, killed in the trenches. At his graveside
she spies a man leaving flowers. He is a Frenchman,
Adrien, and he tells Anna that he and her fiancé
were friends in Paris before the war.
Anna introduces him to Frantz's parents, with
whom she lives, and they are won over despite
their hos#lity to all things French. Through Adrien's
memories, they can feel close to the son they lost,
and Anna finds herself powerfully drawn to the sen‐
si#ve and mysterious visitor.
But all is not as it seems in François Ozon's masterly
study of grief, forgiveness and the consola#ons of
illusion. Shot in somber black and white that bleeds
into color at crucial moments, Frantz is a moving
and complex portrait of a woman seeking to rebuild
her life from the ashes of war.
"Astonishingly beau#ful... a profound look at alien‐
a#on and grief." Eric Kohn, Indiewire
