I’ve gotten announcements about two films in the making. Both are worth a look.
Gleason Ranch: Risking Everything. This is about
a family struggling to salvage their relationships and their 150 year-old, 5th-generation family ranch in Bodega, California. The project began four years ago with the intention of documenting the everyday difficulties of maintaining a family farm. Now, however, it has turned into a much larger, much more personal story of loss, life, pain, and resilience.
This is a 78-second animated video aimed at getting people energized about ending hunger in America. It’s a follow-up to A Place at the Table and an introduction to the faces and stories of SNAP alumni. I’m guessing a longer version will follow soon. In the meantime, have a look.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
