January Free Movie Screening – In Defense of Food


Update: Here’s the link to watch the film.  It’s available until Jan 28th!  http://m.video.pbs.org/video/2365635287/

This month, we’re screening Michael Pollan’s new PBS special, In Defense of Food. Based on Pollan’s book by the same name, “In Defense of Food shows us how, despite the daunting dietary landscape Americans confront in the modern supermarket, we can escape the Western diet and, by doing so, most of the chronic diseases that diet causes. We can relearn which foods are healthy, develop simple ways to moderate our appetites, and return eating to its proper context — out of the car and back to the table. Michael Pollan’s bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.”

Every month, Philly Permaculture screens a documentary, lecture, movie, or clips related to Permaculture, and how we can live more regenerative lives.

Bring some food to share if you’d like. Bring your own plates and utencils, and let’s try to make this a no-waste event! The film is about 2 hours, so we’ll start right at 7PM. Following the movie, we’ll have time for a discussion about the film, or about whatever else is happening in Philly related to Permaculture and regenerative living!

When: Tuesday Jan 19th, 7PM – 9:30PM

Where: Repair the World, 4029 Market St Philadelphia, PA
