FUTURE FOOD on March 6th



First Friday Films is featuring two new films from the FUTURE FOOD series this Friday! The public is invited for a free viewing of the films at 6:30pm on Friday, March 6th at American Memorial Park to learn about new things happening all over the world to feed our growing population.


Did you know that tonight there will be 219,000 new mouths to feed at the world’s dinner table? That is 80 million more people over the next year, and 9 billion people total on planet Earth by the year 2050! FUTURE FOOD is a a documentary series created in 2012 that asks how we are going to feed ourselves in the 21st century, and looks for answers in Peru, Kenya, the USA, India, Nigeria and China.

This Friday, we will show two episodes FOR FREE as part of our monthly documentary series. Episode 1: Old or New looks at a new generation of top chefs in Lima, Peru who are cooking with traditional ingredients and supporting traditional livelihoods. Episode 6: Stay or Go tries to answer the question, “Who will grow China’s food as young people leave the countryside for the cities?” More episodes from this series will be shown at future FFF events.

First Friday Films is a partnership between American Memorial Park, the Bureau of Environmental and Coastal Quality and the Humanities Council with support from other organizations and individuals. This particular film is sponsored by BECQ. As always, our film events are free and open to the public. This event will run approximately 70 minutes.
