Slow Food Athens


Cine Screening of the film "FRESH"
On February 18, Cine will host the first screening in Georgia of the film "FRESH" at 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm. The night will also feature a special panel discussion between showings by local food activists discussing Athens' very own local food system. Tickets are $10. Special student price of $8 with ID.

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers, and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision of our food and our planet's future. FRESH addresses an ethos that has been sweeping the nation and is a call to action America has been waiting for.
FRESH features:
Will Allen, one of the most influential leaders of the food security and urban farming movement. His farm and not-for-profit, Growing Power, have trained and inspired people in every corner of the US to start growing food sustainably.
Joel Salatin, a world-famous sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, made famous by Michael Pollan (also in the movie), author of The Omnivore's Dilemma. Joel writes in his website that he is "in the redemption business: healing the land, healing the food, healing the economy, and healing the culture."
David Ball, a supermarket owner challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy. With the rise of Wal-Mart and other big chains, David Ball saw his family-run supermarket dying, along with a once-thriving local farm community. So he reinvented his business, partnering with area farmers to sell locally-grown food and specialty food products at an affordable price. His plan has brought the local economy back to life.
