Be Here Now: Local Foods, Local Films @ Saratoga Arts Center, 11/15/09
Two Saratoga Springs restaurants – One Caroline Street and Mouzon House – are sponsoring a special event benefit for the Saratoga Film Forum at 2:30pm Sunday (November 15) at the Saratoga Arts Center.
It starts with a screening of the documentary film, “Food, Inc.,” directed by Robert Kenner. The movie lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the dark, mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government. “Food, Inc.” reveals shocking truths about the food we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
The afternoon’s festivities will also include premieres of two new short films by local filmmakers Patti Lane and Sarah Pedinotti; food provided by One Caroline Street and Mouzon House and a panel discussion with local farmers and merchants.
Tickets for “Local Foods, Local Films” are $35 and are strictly limited. Call 584-FILM for reservations.
