Experts in the local food system will be present at each showing for a Q-and-A discussion. Refreshments will be provided by some of Nashville’s most locally in-tune chefs. All showings are free to the public; attendees are asked to donate canned goods and shelf-stable foods to the Good Food Hospitality Pantry in West Nashville.
All films start at 6:30 pm. This year’s dates and films:
Tonight, June 7: The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil
Not a foodie doc, but a look at how Cuba is managing with reduced fossil fuel supplies. This film won the people's choice award at an environmental film festival.
June 21: David vs. Monsanto
The story of a Canadian farmer who defeated Monsanto in court over "Round-Up ready" canola crops.
July 5: Tapped the Movie looks at the bottled water industry — this should be fascinating.
July 19: The series ends with the much laureled One Man, One Cow, One Planet, a film called "absorbing" and "transformative."
Warner Park Nature Center is located at 7311 Highway 100 (352-6299).
