FRESH is a refreshing film because it celebrates farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system.
They bring forth serious issues such as food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity, which are balanced by their offerings of healthier, sustainable alternatives and a practical vision for a future of our food and planet.
FRESH features several main characters including:
- urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award;
- sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma;
- supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.
