Please come to a special edition of DocuTalk and welcome Ana Sofia Joanes for a discussion about her recent film FRESH.
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. The film will screen later in the evening at Central Cinema just a couple of blocks away. (FRESH will have showings at Central Cinema 4/30 thru 5/5) Our pre-show discussion will focus on topics relating to the filmmaking and distribution process. (Ana will give a general Q&A after the screening at the theatre).
Ana was interviewed about the film for an article in the Huffington Post last year. Read it here.
911 Seattle Media Arts Center is hosting the event in partnership with Seattle Film Institute.
Ana was born in Portugal and grew up in Switzerland. Following a travel-abroad program exploring the impact of globalization on the environment and culture, Ana came to the U.S. to study. After a BA in political science from Barnard college, Ana graduated from Columbia Law School, where she was awarded as a Stone Scholar and Human Rights Fellow. Before dedicating herself to filmmaking, Ana founded Reel Youth, Inc., a video production program for youth coming out of detention, and other under-served youth. Her first documentary, Generation Meds, explored our fears and misgivings about mental illness and medication.
Please note the special day and time. DocuTalk normally meets on the fourth Sunday of every month at 7:00pm.
