Bring an appetite for a different kind of movie experience, and a willingness to share your perspective.
We will provide the movie, the meal, and the starting point for a thoughtful, engaging conversation.
This month’s Reel Talk is being hosted by Nurish Food + Drink and is being catered by Nurish chef Tim Meadows. Nurish is located inside the beautiful Anacostia Arts Center.
This month we are excited to show A Place at the Table.
Synopsis: Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.
Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides — as they have in the past — that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.
