Screening & Discussion: Food Chains
Wednesday, November 16th at 6:30pm
Indocumentales presents “Food Chains”
Presenters: Shamina de Gonzaga will moderate a conversation with NYU Food Studies professor Gustavo Setrini as well as experts on North American immigration
Description: “Food Chains” reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets. Fast food is big, but supermarkets are bigger – earning $4 trillion globally. They have tremendous power over the agricultural system. Over the past 3 decades they have drained revenue from their supply chain leaving farmworkers in poverty and forced to work under subhuman conditions. Yet many take no responsibility for this. The narrative of the film focuses on an intrepid and highly lauded group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida – the Coalition of Immokalee Workers or CIW – who are revolutionizing farm labor. Their story is one of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed – to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain.

The film will be followed by a conversation with invited panelists and a Q&A with the audience. The event is co-sponsored by What moves you? and Cinema Tropical.
Location: King Juan Carlos Center Auditorium, 53 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012
