Films 4 Change: Food, Inc. screening + discussion

As part of its Films 4 Change Festival, The Broad Stage in Santa Monica is presenting a screening of Food, Inc. this week, followed by a panel discussion about making wiser food choices and a tasting:

When: Friday, January 14, 2011 starting at 7:30pm
Where: The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center, 1310 11th Street, Santa Monica
Cost: Tickets to the screening and panel discussion: $15 per person; tasting tickets: $10 per person. Tickets can be purchased at The Broad Stage website.

Even if you’ve seen Food, Inc., this week’s screening offers the opportunity to revisit Robert Kenner’s provocative and influential documentary on the state of our food system and the real costs of cheap food.

The post-screening panel discussion will be moderated by Amelia Saltsman, a Slow Food supporter, educator, and author of The Santa Monica Farmers’ Market Cookbook. Amelia will be joined by:

  • Suzanne Goin, proprietor and chef of Lucques, A.O.C., and Tavern;
  • Greg Nauta of Rocky Canyon; and
  • Romeo Coleman of Coleman Family Farm.

The tasting, prepared by Suzanne Goin, will follow the screening and discussion.
