The 2012 Food on Film series runs through October and features films that will not only whet your appetite for local, sustainable food, but will bring out the activist in you as well. All proceeds benefit Slow Food St. Louis’ Small Farm Micro Biodiversity Grant, which over the past 3 years has given more than $20,000 to local farmers. “PLANEAT” is an award winning documentary from Shelley Lee Davies and Or Shlomi that tells the story of three men’s life-long search for a diet, which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy. The film investigates how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones. With the help of some innovative farmers and chefs, Planeat shows how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.
