Please join us for the final film screening of this semester’s Maine Food documentaries. These documentary profiles include stories about Steelbow Farm, Lake St. George Brewing, the Apple Farm, Oyster River Wine Growers, the Aflond Youth Center Biodome, and Sandy River Farms.
Maine Food is a joint project between Global Studies and Cinema Studies at Colby College. In these courses students produce documentary films about food production in Maine. Ever wonder how your favorite beer gets made? Or where the veggies you buy at the farmer’s market come from? Or how a cattle farmer makes his money (or not)? The films cover issues related to sustainability, community-building, and several touch on the difficulties of sustaining a profitable local farm. Not only will you meet the people who produce the food you buy at the farmer’s market and farm stands, but you will get a sense of the current state of local food production in Maine.
The screening will take place in the Wormser Room in Miller Library on December 6 from 5 to 6:30. Pizza and sodas will be served.
