About the Film:
Wasted! The Story of Food Waste aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. Wasted! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st century.
The 2018 One Earth Film Fest is from March 2nd-11th and features a variety of environmental films showing throughout the Chicago area. The theme this year is “This is the Moment.” As we see the effects of climate change on our planet, this is the moment to learn…find our voice…collaborate…and take action. The fest will present more than 30 films at over 50 screenings across the Chicago area.
