Food, Justice & Art: Shorts Program
For this special program, we brought together ten of the incredible short films we found this year. The films explore food access, rooftop farming, workers' rights, and what happens when boysenberries go bad.

You will go behind the kitchen door to learn how restaurant workers survive; visit with rooftop gardeners in Hong Kong and Beijing; hear from a California teenager fighting the diabetes epidemic through poetry; meet an organic farmer married to a scientist who creates genetically modified seeds; follow powerful women using farming to build community in Uganda; see how creative cooks can be in small spaces; learn about urban farming in our own backyard; and enjoy the animated tale of Poisenberry Pete.

The program will be followed by a discussion and call to action featuring Jamie Wolf of Youth Speaks, Sekou Luke of Restaurant Opportunities Center United, filmmakers Melinda James and Ansley West, Karen Heisler of Mission Pie, and moderator Eli Zigas, the Food Systems and Urban Agriculture Program Manager for SPUR.

We are thrilled to pair this program with Mission Pie's famous walnut tartlets. If you haven't tried them, you will fall in love. Learn more about Mission Pie at missionpie.com.
