Eating Alabama
(2012, dir. Andrew Grace, 62 mins., NR)
Andrew and Rashmi return to Alabama with the hopes of eating as their grandparents did- locally and seasonally- only to result in a 2 day, 700 mile journey for their first week’s groceries. As the couple struggles to fulfill their year-long challenge to eat local, we meet family farmers struggling to make a living and neighbors trying to regain a connection to their food. Grace’s personal desire to find a simpler way of life provides a glimpse into how our relationship with food and farming has changed in the last one hundred years.
