Just Eat It
BRA-Cinema Impero – Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 211
We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly half of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of farm waste, through retail, all the way to the back to their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food tossed every year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in ten people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences.
