The Social Justice Film Festival (SJFF) returns for another year in Seattle. This film festival, which will be held October 16 & 17, is an opportunity to view groundbreaking films about issues of social justice in our communities. The 2015 festival will focus on food justice in the United States.
FRIDAY, October 16
Film + Panel Discussion + Exhibit, 6-9 pm, $10
Join us for a community discussion and screening of FOOD CHAIN$, a documentary about the human costs of our food supply. From wages to threats and violence, FOOD CHAIN$ explores the food industry’s treatment of farm workers and the role large buyers play in keeping wages low. You’ll meet a fearless group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida who challenge the status quo to obtain a dignified life for workers and a more transparent food chain. The film was executive-produced by Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation. Narrated by Forest Whitaker.
Following the film will be a panel discussion with FOOD CHAIN$ director Sanjay Rawal, featuring national and local food justice activists and advocates. Feed your mind during intermission with refreshments and the photo exhibition “Faces of Food Justice” by Audra Mulkern of the Female Farmer Project.
