DINNER & A MOVIE - Friday, MAY 21, 2010
The Color of Film & Haley House Bakery Cafe
invite you to their

DINNER & A MOVIE screening event
on Friday, MAY 21, 2010  

"DINNER & A MOVIE" is a quarterly film screening and discussion series that takes place in the intimate, warm and friendly setting of Haley House Bakery Café, 12 Dade Street in Roxbury's Dudley Square neighborhood. This successful series is designed to bring a diverse group of 40 people together over dinner, to watch and discuss topics addressed in the films.

The night's theme is "LOCAL,"  in all aspects: the dinner, the documentary shorts and the discussion.

First, Kelly Dunn, instructor in Haley House's "Take Back the Kitchen" program in health, nutrition and culinary arts, will prepare a Local farm dinner, honoring John and Annette Lee of Allandale Farms.  She will offer a variety of pizzas (including Vegan options) using HHouse's organic wheat crust and seasonal toppings such as kale, leeks, garlic scapes and spinach, sourced from Allandale Farm, served with a mesclun salad with greens from Allandale Farm, also.  Haley House's former trainee (and current staff member) Sokly Hall will prepare a rhubarb upside-down cake with whipped cream, featuring Allandale's rhubarb.  Kelly has shown many teenagers how to love their vegetables, so prepare yourself for a treat.

Dinner is followed by three, locally-produced documentaries revolving around the  growing movement of eating and supporting LOCALLY FARMED FOOD:

KNOW YOUR ROOTS:  EAT LOCAL  
produced by Sara DeForest and Scott Silverman

describes five important reasons to eat local food.
Produced as Tufts University senior project, the film takes us on a journey of eating local in Boston with interviews from local food activists, perspectives from farmer John Lee of Brookline's Allandale Farm, a mother, chefs, a store owner and others.  Local food events such as the Souper Bowl, Meat Meet and the Relocalization Conference are included to show how widely available LOCAL food actually is in New England, and any small step towards a local food system is a good one.

a preview and excerpt of the documentary
FRESH directed by Ana Sofia Joanes
(opens in Boston on JUNE 18 at The Brattle Theatre)
FRESH offers profiles of several of the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of 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.  

PLANTING FOR PEACE:  BURY SEEDS, NOT BODIES
produced by Michael J. Cermak

is not your typical film about gardening. Co-written and edited by Boston youth, this film takes a close look at the young workers who are powering an exciting movement to revolutionize urban food systems. As new farmers markets, urban farms and community gardens sprout in urban communities of color, few have focused on the young people working the markets and gardens. These new jobs not only help bring healthy, locally grown food to otherwise food deserted areas but they also develop young leaders by giving them meaningful work.  PLANTING FOR PEACE connects the anti-violence movement to the new opportunities in the urban green movement showing how closely related they really are. Topics include, food justice, food deserts, guerilla gardening, victory gardens and more.


Doors open at 5:30pm.  Open seating.
Dinner & Dessert 6 - 7 pm
Films and discussions 7 - 8:30pm
Discussion led by Nina LaNegra of The Roxbury Media Institute (founder of Art Is Life Itself!  Thursday night programs at The Haley House Bakery Cafe) will include John and Annette of Allandale Farm, and the filmmakers.

Tickets are $25 per person
(Organic beer, bio-dynamic wine, a wide array of non-alcoholic beverages and gratuities are additional.)
