The conversation about where our food comes from has risen from a whisper to a roar this summer, fueled by food-related film festivals at Warner Parks and The Belcourt Theatre. The dialog continues this week with a screening of The Real Dirt on Farmer John, the tale of Midwestern farmer John Peterson, who turned his farm into a haven for hippies, radicals and artists in the 1960s, only to find the people he aimed to help turned on him as the years passed. The 6:30 p.m. screening will be followed by a conversation about community-supported agriculture with the owners of Delvin Farms. The Good Food Film series concludes July 21 with several short, kid-friendly films about food. Fido will provide free coffee.
Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. Starts: July 7. Continues through July 21, 2009
