One Earth Film Fest serves up food films
Food is on the menu at this weekend’s One Earth Film Festival. Three films, “Ingredients,” “Food Patriots” and “Soul Food Junkies,” will take up issues related to the dark side of the food industry, the growing food justice movement and how activists, farmers and plenty of fed-up people are fighting back against a broken and unhealthy food system.
Last we heard, plenty of tickets are still available to the festival, which starts Friday, March 1 and continues through Sunday, March 3 in locations around Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park. The second-year festival will extend beyond its suburban roots this year with the screening of “Soul Food Junkies,” taking place March 3 at Saint Martin’s Episcopal Church, 5700 W. Midway Park, in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood
