"Fresh" the Movie Review

The Mr. and I are both big fans of documentary style films. Real life is scary enough for me. No fiction needed. For us to be able to watch a documentary film in our rural community it means that we must wait until it comes out on Netflix. However, last week we were pleasantly surprised to find out that there would be a local screening of the new movie "FRESH".

The movie "Fresh" is about the American food system. What is working, what is not, and what we can do about it. It was a wonderful film that did not paint the farmer as the bad person nor the uneducated shopper. It did paint a very accurate picture as to what is going on.

This is a must see film for anyone who eats food. There are many myths spread by the industrialized farming industry, and this movie exposes the truth. It shows you were your food is coming from which might not be suitable for children as it did show some gross (but very common) food production scenes. Maybe it should shock you. Even if you are not an "environmentalist" type the film teaches you without lecturing you about where your food really comes from.

Besides the content, the quality of the movie is excellent. It has a nice visual style, great editing, and a nice flow start to finish. It honestly could have gone on for another hour without complaint.

I guarantee you will never think of food the same after watching this film. To see the other movie trailers and find a screening location visit Fresh the Movie.

This is definitely a must. We need to change the way we grow food so that it is not only more sustainable, but it's healthier for us. Local is the way of the future.
