What’s On Your Plate, a documentary film about kids and food politics, will be shown Oct. 29 in Room AB20 Weeks Hall, 1215 West Dayton Street from 7–9 p.m.
The free event will include:
- A welcome and introduction with Gregg Mitman, Interim Director of the Nelson Institute.
- A “rough-cut” screening of Catherine Gund’s film, “What’s On Your Plate.” This film is still a work-in-progress. By viewing the rough-cut and providing feedback the audience will get to play a critical role in the editing process and provide ideas for the film’s audience engagement campaign.
- Audience feedback session with filmmaker Catherine Gund moderated by Judith Helfand, Nelson Institute’s Filmmaker-in-Residence. The discussion will focus on the film as a story, how it can be used locally and across the country, and on the food systems work being done in Madison.
- Tales from Planet Earth update. Gregg Mitman and Judith Helfand will talk with the audience about plans for the 2009 festival and possibilities for community organization involvement.
