SECOND: If you still haven’t seen Food, Inc- here’s your chance:

Food, Inc. at Jacob Burns Theater in Pleasantville

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner talks to best-selling authors Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) and Michael Pollan (Omnivore’s Dilemma) to lift the veil on our nation’s food industry—a nexus of mechanized farms, engineered food, and unhealthy practices that’s been effectively hidden from American consumers by slick public relations and slack government regulation. This eye-opening documentary explains how unfettered corporations exploited laws and subsidies to create wholesale monopolies, and explores how modern developments in food production pose grave risks to our health and environment.

Robert Kenner. 2008. 94 m. NR. US. Magnolia Pictures.

LASTLY:
The reason I’ve been away is that my grandmother Marion passed away on July 20th. I am so very lucky to have spent her last afternoon with her looking at flowers and singing and left her having her last cup of green tea. She passed in her sleep that evening. Her name is Marion von Geldern, and to her I owe my love of gardening, organic food, caring about the welfare of animals and my love of cooking. Marion was one of the most loving, non-judgemental, optimistic and caring people I’ve ever met. This is a bit personal, but here is short video that I was able to make on that last afternoon. If I had known she would pass on that evening, I would have stayed with her for her last 2 hours, but am deeply grateful that I had what I had. Marion, I’ll be loving you, always. Here’s the link.
