When food is the problem.. can food be the solution?

Student tickets: $9

This visually stunning film from filmmakers Shelley Lee Davis and Or Shlomi tells the story of the scientists, farmers and chefs tackling one of the greatest problems of our age: Western culture’s love affair with meat and dairy. Through an extraordinary personal and mouthwatering culinary journey, we discover the wide range of medical and environmental benefits of eating our veggies. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T. Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.’s use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel’s investigations into how to feed an ever-burgeoning population in the midst of global warming. With the help of some innovative chefs and farmers, we are shown how the problems we face today can be solved, without simply resorting to a diet of lentils and lettuce leaves.
