PolyCultures: Food Where We Live -- Cbus Premiere 7/11 3pm
- July 6, 2009 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #77042
PolyCultures: Food Where We Live is a movie that contrasts the one-dimensional industrial farming systems throughout Northeast Ohio with the various elements that make up a more diverse, just, healthy, and sustainable food system in the same area. Slow Food Columbus has teamed up with other members of the local food community to bring this movie to Columbus! The area premiere of PolyCultures will be on the afternoon of July 11 at Studio 35 at 3:00 p.m., followed by a reception at Global Gallery from 6 to 9; and the guys who made the film possible, David Pearl, Tom Kondilas and Brad Masi, will be present to share their story. $5 admission.July 6, 2009 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #285566

Geez. I want to see the movie but the trailer suuuucks.July 6, 2009 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #285568
At least there were no spoilers ;-pJuly 6, 2009 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm #285569
Anyone know how it compares to Food Inc? It sounds like some (or all?) of PolyCultures was shot in Ohio, which is pretty awesome.July 6, 2009 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #285570
I want to go to this, but may be working the wine fest at the Market…July 7, 2009 2:44 am at 2:44 am #285571

I believe that’s right. Food Inc. is about the national food system, while PolyCultures is specifically about Ohio (maybe even northern Ohio, I’m not sure — since it hasn’t played in the area, I haven’t seen it).

:-) I kinda noticed that too. Shawn at the N. Market coffeeshop saw it at the Cleveland Film Festival and came back completely geeked about it; he’s been one of the main people behind getting it here. So given his level of excitement and effort I’m guessing the trailer isn’t all that representative.July 7, 2009 3:36 am at 3:36 am #285572
+ 1 getting this here.July 7, 2009 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #285573
Yeah, I definitely want to support Studio 35 doing stuff like this.July 7, 2009 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #285574
Oh, yes. Studio 35 is awesome with these types of events! :DJuly 11, 2009 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #285575
Quick bump — this is this afternoon!
(And we just picked up some Ohio wines that Slow Food will be donating for the reception afterward… all Kinkead Ridge / River Village, some Traminette, some Riesling, some Cab Franc, and some of their Revelation Red. Some of our own favorites. And since Kinkead Ridge wasn’t at the Food and Ohio Wine Festival at the North Market, we figured we should have something that people wouldn’t have had a chance to try there.)July 11, 2009 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #285576
I am now doubly sad I will no longer be able to addend this as I had planned.July 13, 2009 2:58 am at 2:58 am #285577
This was way cool — especially the reception afterward, jam-packed with area foodies, including some of the people who were in the film. So glad I went.
Kudos to everyone who put in the time to make it happen, and to Studio 35 and Global Gallery for hosting!
