The Cook County Whole Foods Co-op is hosting family movie nights this month at the What’s Upstairs Theater in Grand Marais. The first offering “Fresh,” will be on May 8. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the movie starts at 7 p.m. The theater is located at 301 First Ave. W.
Featured movies will cover many topics such as the environment, globalization, sustainability, climate change, developing world, indigenous peoples, earth science, and children’s films. Admission is free for Co-op owners, $5 for others. Bring your own snacks.
“Fresh” celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
Among several main characters, “Fresh” features urban farmer and activist Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart-dominated economy. Running time is 72 minutes.
