Film Screening Details

Back by Popular Demand….

We are happy to announce that LMC will again be hosting a Slow Food Film Festival, for students and members of Slow Food Delta Diablo, on Friday, October 9th in our Library Community Room from 6:30-9:30 pm. We hope that you can come and also encourage any students you know to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn more about issues surrounding our food and how it is grown.

Los Medanos College and Slow Food Delta Diablo will be screening two films:

“Fresh” The Movie (6:45 pm)

“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.”

“Homegrown” (8:00 pm)

“HOMEGROWN follows the Dervaes family who run a small organic farm in the heart of urban Pasadena, California. While "living off the grid", they harvest over 6,000 pounds of produce on less than a quarter of an acre, make their own bio diesel, power their computers with the help of solar panels, and maintain a website that gets 4,000 hits a day. The film is an intimate human portrait of what it's like to live like "Little House on the Prairie" in the 21st Century.

Hope to see you there!
