Saturday, May 11 at 12pm (film) and 1:45pm (panel discussion). West Newton Cinema (1296 Washington St, West Newton).

Join the West Newton Cinema Foundation in a screening and panel discussion of the film “Food Inc., 2.” This sequel to the groundbreaking documentary “Food, Inc.” explores the consequences of industrialized food systems, highlighting recent issues such as the baby formula shortage and COVID-19 outbreaks in meatpacking plants. With insights from producers Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, the film offers a hopeful look at the shifts towards sustainable practices and the potential of antitrust policies and fair-labor practices to reform how our food is produced.

After the screening, join a panel of experts as they discuss the implications of the film and explore solutions to current food system challenges.

Ticket purchase is required for the film, but admission to the panel discussion is free. Guests may attend just the discussion, but must reserve a spot by registering in advance. Tickets for the film are available at West Newton Cinema box office.
