mmmmmm...... Food-Farm-Film Fest

We here at LAMB like food, especially LOCAL food [as well as film]. The Local Food-Farm-Film Fest will take place at the Wealthy St Theater in conjunction with Farms Without Harms. The festival will feature 10 short films that aim at making agriculture and food production more transparent in hopes that people will think twice before they enjoy some KFC or even a salad from Panera.

Not only are we interested in food, but also how different types of artistic mediums can be used to raise political, relational and social concerns and how art can be an incubator for new ideas and change.

The event takes place at the Wealthy Theater, 1130 Wealthy SE in Grand Rapids, on Saturday Sept. 16 from 1-10 p.m. Admission is a suggested donation of $10, or $7 after 5 p.m. Michigan native Kirsten Kelly will discuss


her 90-minute documentary, "Asparagus: A Stalk-umentary," which will be shown at 7:30 p.m., and answer questions after the screening.

Did you know that Asparagus is actually an herb and a perennial herb at that!

The Future of Food is an hour-and-a-half documentary about how food is really grown in the United States. A great a primer to this festival - you can watch it here.
