On Thursday evening Anna Lappé attended a moderated conversation at Palace Ballroom to tout her new book, Diet For a Hot Planet. One recurring topic of discussion was the pivotal documentary Food, Inc. During one such conversation, Lappé mentioned a fondness for another documentary, Fresh, in which director Ana Sofia Joanes celebrates the movers-and-shakers revamping this country’s agricultural model.
You can see Fresh for yourself at Central Cinema starting April 30. Joanes will be in attendance at that Friday premiere and will host a post-film Q&A.
The film screens at Central Cinema through May 6. To see a schedule of showtimes, click here.
