From Shelley Rogers:
Hungry Filmmakers IV — A Featured Event of Eat, Drink Local Week
New York’s finest gathering of film and food will return for its fourth program at Anthology Film Archives on September 28, 2010. The event was founded with the aim of drawing more audiences to up-and-coming documentary films and the urgent food-related topics they concern in a lively atmosphere that promotes discussion. Hungry Filmmakers is proud to participate in Eat, Drink Local Week, a week-long celebration of food throughout the city.
Hungry Filmmakers IV schedule includes films that explore fascinating niches of our food culture. From evaluating the healthy advantages and disadvantages of Southern food in Byron Hurt’s Soul Food Junkies, to a profound look at beekeeping in Taggart Siegel’s Queen of the Sun; a feminist tale of hunting in Ashley Chiles’ The Texas Huntress, and the troubled state of our water supply in Sam Bozzo’s Blue Gold, Hungry Filmmakers IV will offer a smorgasbord of cinematic feast. Starved for Attention exposes the neglected and largely invisible crisis of childhood malnutrition.
Audiences experience a dynamic ten-minute excerpt from each film, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers or representatives from each. The panel will be moderated by Nicole Taylor, host of Heritage Radio Network’s “Hot Grease” and self-styled “food culturalist.”
