Grand Jury Prize Nominee - Best Documentary, Sundance Film Festival
What are the implications for the Cincinnati metro area, what solutions are in place and what options should we consider?
Cincinnati World Cinema, in cooperation with the United Way of Greater Cincinnati and the Freestore Foodbank, presents the powerful documentary film A PLACE AT THE TABLE on Sunday, October 13, at 3:00 pm, at the Carnegie in Covington, followed by post-film discussions led by experts from the United Way and Freestore Foodbank.
ABOUT THE FILM
A PLACE AT THE TABLE is a must-see report from the front lines of the struggle against hunger and poor nutrition — it shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and suggests that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides, as they have in the past, that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.
In addition to eye-opening stats and information, directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine hunger through the lens of real people and families struggling with "food insecurity," a genteel term used to describe the phenomena of not knowing where one's next meal will come from.
We meet Rosie, a young girl in Colorado living in a ramshackle home housing three generations of family. Her mom works at The Cattleman's Grill, and yet the family is forced to stretch their budget with starchy food items and whatever the local church can distribute. We also visit with Rosie's teacher and a pastor who work for the local food bank.
In Philadelphia, we meet single mother Barbie, who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids. And in Mississippi we encounter grade-schooler Tremonica, whose asthma is aggravated by a diet noticeably lacking in nutrition. Along the way we encounter a county sheriff, teachers and other regular citizens who are forced to use foodbanks because their paychecks don't stretch sufficiently. These personal stories are interwoven with insights from experts, ordinary citizens and activists.
The filmmakers also feature the phenomenon of "food deserts," areas where the means of traveling to well stocked supermarkets can be prohibitive, forcing folk to rely on poorly stocked shops and convenience stores with meager fresh food supplies but lots of empty-calory junk food.
In the end, the actor and veteran advocate Jeff Bridges best puts the problem in perspective. "If another country was doing this to our kids, we would be at war."
