Over nine months, director Mischa Hedges and his crew traveled the west coast to learn more about our food system. While interviewing farmers, agricultural experts, nutritionists and activists, Mischa and his team learned that the standard methods of producing food do not take environmental or human health costs into consideration.

They also spoke with farmers who are practicing more sustainable methods of producing food, and learned of the many alternatives to conventional agriculture. The result is SUSTAINABLE TABLE, a documentary that takes an unadulterated look into the food you eat, and how you can make a difference to your health and the environment by the food choices you make.

This is part of the UMBS weekly film series. All movies are free and open to the public.
